Wookey Hole seeks witch for £50k a year

Wookey Hole, in Somerset, is advertising for a witch to live in the famous caves and teach visitors about witchcraft and magic, according to a news item on pagan website Pagan Magic.

The £50,000 a year job is being offered through the local Jobcentre.

Apparently the tourist attraction had another witch filling the role, but she recently retired.

According to the recruiters, this is a straightforward job, simply involving doing everything a witch does and explaining it to visitors, although it does require some weekend and evening work.

The caves, it seems, are incomplete without their live-in witch, since an old woman who lived there hundreds of years ago made legends of the Wookey Hole Witch famous. Men as well as women are welcome to apply and the interviews will take place on July 28.
