A job centre is advertising a “witch” vacancy with tourist site Wookey Hole, in Somerset, England for £50,000 a year.

The witch, who has to live in the site’s caves, is expected to teach witchcraft and magic.

Wookey Hole staff say the role is straightforward: live in the cave, be a witch and do the things witches do.

The advert for the post, placed in the local press as well as job centres, says applicants must be able to cackle and cannot be allergic to cats.

The job has come up after the previous witch retired from the role.

“We are witchless at the moment so need to get the role filled as soon as possible,” said Daniel Medley from the tourist destination.

Ambitious witches looking for a “key career move” should arrive dressed for work armed with any “essential witch accoutrements”.

Due to sexual discrimination law, the job cannot demand that the post is filled by a woman.
