New York offering $170,000 per year job for rat killing experts to rid city of 18million rodents
New York City is looking for a top-notch exterminator to help rid the city of its 18 million rats.
It was estimated in 2014 that for every person in New York there were two rats, meaning the vermin population now stands at approximately 18m.
The government of NYC is looking to hire a Director of Rodent Migration and are willing to pay up to $170,000 (£140,000) for the right candidate.
Applicants will need a bachelor’s degree and a “general aura of badassery”, according to the amusing listing.
A “virulent vehemence for vermin” and the “drive, determination, and killer instinct needed to fight the real enemy – New York City’s relentless rat population” are also desirable qualities that anybody interested in the vacancy should possess.
