IF you are a fan of Dolly Parton and like to work “nine to five” you can always follow the Government’s brand new jobs career website advice.

It has been specially set up for those who have lost their job due to the pandemic and are searching for a fresh career move.

You are asked to fill in a personality questionnaire. Once completed the Careers Service recommend you a range of jobs to match your criteria.

Jobs as a boxer, a meteorologist, a bomb disposal expert, and sports commentator, you know the usual run-of-the-mill professions you can easily retrain in. The careers website is even directing out of work thespians to become stunt doubles. Talk about ‘’break a leg’’.

If these career changes fail to inspire you can always retrain as a Government careers adviser.

I hear the only experience necessary for this important role is the ability to live in a land of pretence and make believe.
