Vacancy at West Ham

You will be responsible for the club's social media output and official statements - but we'll only pay you the basic London Living Wage (£9.75 p/hr).

The last line of this ad is the best....

Ten bucks an hour to be arguably the most important press liaison for the club?

Without clicking the link I assumed it was a junior role or an internship etc but it's not :lol: Bleeding hell, I mean there are probably plenty of youngsters who would love that role but from the job description it looks like they want someone experienced.

If the club or anyone ever want an example of social media and football clubs, Man City's Youtube channel is superb, market leading.

How little they value the role shows just how out of touch these old farts are with the modern world.

For those who don't believe club plants exist this is from the job description ....

"Play an important role in media monitoring, flagging any potential issues before they become public and developing strategies to tackle them".

Media management - they're all at it. The required skills bit includes ....

"Persuasive, resilient and able to handle criticism."


:lol: Damn right they need those skills. Those poor (in every sense of the term sadly, by the looks of it) lads and lasses who venture on here as their master's voice deserve more than a tenner an hour for having to grin and bear us. (I take it a vacancy has arisen because one of them ran out of the room screaming at the prospect of another day doing the Daves' dirty work).

I couldn't get someone to answer the phones here for £9.75 an hour, let alone do all that lot!

So, about £2 above the minimum wage? Insane. Unless it's a typo.
