Witch's job offers a magic £50k a year

Somerset tourist spot the Wookey Hole is advertising for a resident witch to live in its cave

The Harry Potter premier has already cast a spell over this week's events and now fans of the dark arts can apply for a job at tourist spot the Wookey Hole. The Somerset attraction is advertising for a resident witch to live in its cave.

The successful applicant will get £50,000 a year, must be able to cackle and can't be allergic to cats.

As the Wookey Hole's staff explain, the job spec requires someone to "live in the cave, be a witch, and do the things witches do".

According to legend, the original witch inhabited the caves in the dark ages until she was turned to stone by the Abbot of Glastonbury for causing witch-like woes such as souring the milk and spoiling crops. The stone stands there to this day – presumably a reminder to the successful applicant to keep their spells family friendly.

The £50,000-a-year salary is pro rata and auditions will take place on 28 July, involving an on-site assessment incorporating a range or standard tasks, like magic. As things have moved on somewhat since medieval times, the role is open to men, women and trans-gender witches to comply with sexual discrimination laws.

Hopeful witches should dig out their black hats and capes as they are expected to turn up "dressed for work". Which should make for quite a sight in Somerset on audition day. Muggles of course, need not apply.

One of my ancient relatives had her head chopped off for being a witch, maybe I should apply? :D
I like soap bubbles.
