The 50 Weirdest Job Titles

The 50 Weirdest Job Titles

Here at Coburg Banks we see so many CVs that you would think that nothing would surprise us any more. However, once in a while we see a weird job title on a CV that is so bizarre it completely bamboozles us.

I have compiled below the 50 weirdest job titles that have genuinely been found on CVs. The majority of the convoluted job titles below are from the marketing sector. It perhaps says something about people in marketing, an industry we recruit for and of which I am one.

I have deciphered as many of the weird job titles as I could and put the logical job title next to the silly one, but some have defeated me.  I’ve put a question mark to the weird job titles I couldn’t quite understand.  If you can guess what they are, pop your version of the job title in the comments box below.

In Subway people get called “Sandwich Artist” – call yourself a Customer Assistant/Sales Assistant, not Sandwich Artist! As an ex-recruiter, this made me giggle a lot when someone walked in with it on their CV. In cinemas as well job titles were often “Multifunctional Assistant” – again, customer service assistant would suffice.

49., Change Magician – seems to be a cashier?

Here is my best guess for the following job titles:
40. Public Policy/ Communication Manager (in the Pharma industry)
49. Change Management Director (IT)

Master Handshaker sounds like a receptionist.
Actions and Repercussions Adviser might be a customer service manager.
Second Tier Totalist sounds like it should be the name of a speed metal band!

You have either forgotten your history your you have a type-o. 1917 was roughly the end of WW 1 not WW2. You did get your dates correct. Cudos.

I reckon 41. Communications Ambassador is something like a Social Media Marketing specialist. 46. I would go for a Complaints Handler and 48 I would wishfully think was a lift operator in a ski resort or perhaps someone who serves the Genepi.

I love it… I was called ‘Stores Gorilla’ (store man) at one company until the COO (Chief Operations Officer) decided, during a board meeting I accidentally found myself a part of, to give the title CEO (Chief Entertainments Officer)
