CV-Library asks who’s off to the job centre tomorrow

Could recruitment firms get calls from surprisingly high-profile job candidates tomorrow in the wake of the result of the general election?

One job board certainly seems to think so. CV-Library is driving a van around London today with an advert based on the chances of some of the main party leaders starting a hunt for new employment in the morning.

With polls closing at 10pm tonight, the advert features caricatures of Tory leader Theresa May, Labour boss Jeremy Corbyn, the Lib Dem’s Tim Farron and UKIP’s Paul Nuttall, with the caption: “Who will be looking for a new job?”

All four leaders are under intense scrutiny and a small Conservative win could intensify the pressure on all four, given Prime Minister May’s bold decision to call an early vote.

In the bigger picture, with 650 seats in Parliament up for grabs across the UK today, perhaps recruiters should start to consider what jobs might be suitable for unsuccessful candidates.

Are these the weirdest interview questions ever?

Would you refuse to serve a man accompanied by his pet goose on a lead?
