James Bond Wanted, Enquire Within – UK Government Website Lists Fake 007 Job Opening

Hilarious James Bond-related computer abuse isn’t just limited to the preposterous hacking scenes in Skyfall,but has now spilled over into reality.

A job ad listed on the UK government’s official website was looking for a Target Elimination Specialist, code 007. Of course the ad has been pulled, but The Verge saved it for posterity.

From time to time the UK government has a need to remove people whose continued existence poses a risk to the effective conduct of public order. So we require particularly skilled professionals who are prepared to work on a non-attributable basis to deal with these problems.

The role will involve international travel to a number of contries where individuals need to be removed.

The ideal candidate will need to have no particular distinguishing features so as to blend in and be able to take on new identities as required. They will need to be resourceful in finding ways to accomplish their missions and, in some cases, to leave foreign countries by non-conventional means. The role would suit candidates with prior military experience, particularly in the use of sniper rifles.

The job holder will receive all necessary equipment, including passports, special watches, jet packs, mini-submarines and a Walther PPK.

This role is particularly appropriate for those who like their martinis shaken and not stirred.

To apply for this role, please express your interest somewhere in the vicinity of the large and rather fake-looking rock in Regent’s Park.

Seems like security needs to be tightened a little.

And I can’t help but wonder if somebody from Sony or their marketing agencies placed this. They’ll never be able to admit it, of course.

Okay, then, Americans. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to place an equivalent ad for Ethan Hunt.
