The Weirdest Job Titles of 2018

Developer Evangelist

Managers in businesses of all sizes are ever more conscious that knowledge is power, and wranglers step in to help bosses understand all of those pesky facts and figures. Once that data has been wrangled into well-behaved spreadsheets, businesses have all the tools they need to make smart decisions that help them get bigger and better. Fact.

Play Planner

Who would not love being paid to play? Big kids will love this role, planning and running sessions for young children to play the day away. Creativity and a passion for education will put you in good stead to win the Favourite Teacher award in pretty short order.
