There are few jobs that can be described as both someone’s best dream and worst nightmare, but heading up Ryanair’s communications department would no doubt make its way onto that list.
With the airline’s current head of communications is moving onto greener pastures, rarely muzzled Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary has dubbed the now empty position as “the worst job in Irish PR”.
Mr O’Leary doesn’t shy away from exposing what the job will entail, when describing the position, by stating that “as a company that spends little on advertising, we rely on our communications department to generate loads of free PR as well as responding to the never-ending series of absurd claims and fanciful stories that surface on a daily basis.
“We look forward to recruiting another brave soul to take on the worst job in Irish PR and look forward to grooming the next candidate to take over the high profile and incredibly overpaid position.”
e-Travel Blackboard would like to say ‘good luck’ to the new head of communications and we look forward to seeing the free PR that is generated from the offices of Ryanair.
