Dream Jobs: Stonehenge Seeks Its First General Manager

stonehenge-general-manager.jpg

In promising unemployment news, the ancient ruins of Stonehenge are seeking their first general manager. Job responsibilities presumably include sleeping in late, making sure nothing has fallen over, and leaving work early. What is Stonehenge anyways? I always imagined they're like, the ruins of some ancient sorcerer's workshop.

The English Heritage organization, which oversees English historic sites, is searching for a general manager of the mysterious monument -- the first time such a position has existed since Stonehenge was built, sometime around 2,500 B.C.


The senior manager will lead 80 employees and 100 volunteers in this new burst of modern activity at the ancient site. The person selected for the position will be expected to work with druid leaders who make regular pilgrimages to the Wiltshire stones.

English Heritage's Tim Reeve told BBC that the organization is seeking a special someone who can maintain "the dignity of the stones."

First of all (and despite what I said in the title), they shouldn't really say the person chosen will be Stonehenge's FIRST general manager, because it may have had one back in 2500 B.C. when it was first built. I mean, there could have been a whole line of them. Applicants should send their résumés via messenger owl to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, care of Keeper of Keys and Grounds Rubeus Hagrid.

Thanks to InkedDreams, who's already got the job in the bag but will hire you to do all the work she's supposed to do, but for a fraction of the pay.

    I would hope an additional duty would be playing Spinal Tap's "Stonehenge" each morning so there would finally be an acceptable sized stage set.

    Remember, Stonehenge is measured with one apostrophe, not two

  • I've been to Stonehenge. It was nice. I took some photos.

  • Will the job imply yanking the bird-whislte?

    They built Stonehenge, one of the biggest henges in the world.
    No one's built a henge like that ever since.
    No one knows what the fuck a henge is.
    Before Stonehenge there was Woodhenge and Strawhenge.
    But, er...
    But a big, bad wolf came and blew them down
    and three little piggies were relocated to the projects.
