A Village is miising their Witch: Any takers?

The witch job that pays 50,000 
 
Wookey Hole is currently witchless
A job centre is advertising a "witch" vacancy with tourist site Wookey Hole, in Somerset, for 50,000 a year.

The witch, who has to live in the site's caves, is expected to teach witchcraft and magic.

Wookey Hole staff say the role is straightforward: live in the cave, be a witch and do the things witches do.

The advert for the post, placed in the local press as well as job centres, says applicants must be able to cackle and cannot be allergic to cats.

The job has come up after the previous witch retired from the role.

"We are witchless at the moment so need to get the role filled as soon as possible," said Daniel Medley from the tourist destination.

 ;D

Also worthy of note; due to anti-discrimination laws they can't specifiy they want a female witch unless they can produce documentary evidence the original witch was female... so men can apply and possibly get the job.

Haha, if they provided free wireless internet and allowed electronics, I'd so learn Wicca and apply.

50,000 pounds a year?  Jesus, why do I not live in Somerset?

You do have to live in a cave.

But on the other hand without having to pay for accomadation that makes the 50k nearly entirely disposable income... which is an awesome wage.

According to google the exchange rate is roughly 1.6 at the moment... so around $80k.

Really not bad...

Needs to have wireless internet access, men/women able to come into my cave for 'private sessions', vacation time and maybe a good calling plan to get me in the door.

They probably do want a woman because of the stereotype.  Though I am a witch.....  I guess it would depend on what kind of accommodations this cave had

I'd apply, but my practices won't permit me to take money for it, so I'm kind of out of luck. ^_^

Should have probably posted this when it actually happened, but the witch has been selected.

As Carole Bohanan is happy to acknowledge, it is a big step up in her career. From now on the estate agent from Shepton Mallet, Somerset, will be known as Carla Calamity, the Witch of Wookey Hole.

Miss Calamity, who admits to being several hundred years old it would be impolite to ask how many beat 300 other witches to the most coverted job in covendom.
