Popular blogger Bizo Zulu is looking for an accountant, and his job ad has got engineers and other kinds of professionals wanting to apply.
The advertisement posted on his official Facebook page has been hailed as the best Kenyan job ad ever, heck, possibly even the world’s best.
Contrary to the generic, HR ads that we are all accustomed to, Biko Zulu and his partner have taken as easy, laid back appraoch towards hiring.
The accountant, the ad says, should be “a lady accountant. Someone young. Preferably still smelling of course works. In fact, if you think 38 is old then you are the right fit.”
It blends seriousness with humor, which explains why it has been shared more than 200 times on Facebook.
Read it beow:
My partner and I are looking for an accountant. A lady accountant. Someone young. Preferably still smelling of course works. In fact, if you think 38 is old then you are the right fit. You should double as admin. You will receive clients, and be able to shoot the breeze and bullshit with the best of them. Occasionally you will make tea (Mine, black with honey, Fred’s with milk and laxative). It is important that you are presentable in looks. Note; we are not looking for someone with socialite ambitions. Which means you should be able to spell – at the very least, your name. We won’t hire anyone who calls herself, Swagilionaire, or worse, Lucylicious. We are self respecting people, for chrissake!
You won’t do dishes. You should be able to receive phone calls and messages. Which means you can’t sound like someone from Kiza at 3am. Talking of which, you can’t come jobo drunk. Or drink at work. Unless we are all drinking. And we will. Fridays. And sometimes Thursdays. Maybe even on Wednesdays. (If Fred is buying). Oh, if you drink Guarana please don’t even bother. If you have watched Mad Men, we probably will love you. No SDAs…nah, I’m joking!
We are a cool bunch, an office of 13 modern slaves, 11 who are millennials. Which means only 11 are cool. (Hint: doesnt include Fred). So yeah, they are all hiding in their earphones these millennials. Nobody talks to anyone. Talk is cheap in this century. I suspect they don’t even know each other. It is a weird time to be alive. We all love pizza.
Of course we will pay you for this. And your pizza.
