"Dangermen wanted" - bizarre job advert requires acrobatics and cave singing

A company in Wales has advertised for a rather unusual position, which requires applicants to have a head for heights and also be able to sing a cappella.

Llechwedd Slate Caverns in Blaenau Ffestiniog asks for candidates who are “physically fit and strong and able to work in semi-darkness.” The role, which is listed by JW Graves, also wants jobseekers that are bilingual in Welsh and English, good with acrobatics and balancing skills.

JW Graves is keeping the exact details of the job under wraps, however Michael Bewick, Managing Director at Llechwedd Slate Cavern, has revealed that the successful candidate will attain the title of “Dangerman”.  He explained: “The Dangermen roles will be central to the delivery of our hugely exciting new visitor attraction which complement our existing on-site facilities.

“The story of Llechwedd and the slate industry in Wales is one of great human endeavour, courage, strength and ingenuity.

“Our Dangermen will help us to share what is an absolutely compelling part of Welsh heritage and culture with a whole new audience.”

The Dangerman role also promises to be “the first of its kind in the world”, according to WalesOnline, and the closing date for applications is 22 January.

Recruitment Grapevine recently reported on some of the most unusual job adverts around, including a vegan only advert, a stalker, and even a kitty litter manager.

So, what do you think this secretive new “Dangerman” role could be? Tell us in the comments.
