Sounds like the Canadian Treasury Board is in need of some real-life magicians!

A job posting by the federal government advertises that the Board is looking to hire various administrative wizards.

We assume they only want Hogwarts grads with perfect grades in their O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s.

It doesn’t matter what house you’re in, however.

They’ll take any qualified applicants, whether they’re a “Gryffindor (brave, loyal, courageous and adventurous), a Ravenclaw (wise, creative, clever and knowledgeable), a Hufflepuff (hard working, dedicated, fair, patient) or a Slytherin (resourceful, ambitious, determined and crave leadership)”.

The Treasury Board wants to use their Sorting Hat (where’ve they been hiding it all these years?!) to match talented candidates with positions that will suit them right.

Take some time off the Quidditch pitch and work some magic into your résumé before applying – the deadline is April 7th.

With salary that ranges from $57,430 to $61,877 and the ability to pull out all your hitherto unused Harry Potter references, this sounds like a dream job for anyone who grew up loving J.K. Rowling’s fantasy series.
