As Canberra Public Servants flinch at imminent cuts, the unspeakable has come to the rescue. A new kind of government job in a form offered in new multi-hooked online ads in the Canberra Times. Have you got what it takes?
Without looking down, what’s the colour of your office carpet? Get it right? Then you’ve got what it takes.
Notice anything unusual today? Then you’ve got what it takes.
You’re cruising round State Circle, tuned into 104.7FM, fingers tapping the steering wheel. You see the flag on Parliament House flapping in the breeze. You indicate to move to the left lane, but a car swerves in front of you. You hit the breaks, look to your right and quickly move into another lane. You miss your exit. Slight problem. You’re already late for your big meeeting. Then you remember you can take the next exit and double back to Kings Avenue. Problem Solved. …… Adaptable. Decicive. Aware. Nothing unususal you figure, until you discover these are the qualities you’ll be valued for as a Surveillance Officer.
Guess who’s recruiting when we’re all cutting? Oh, and dont tell anyone you’re applying.
