When being a witch pays off
If the idea of creating lesson plans all summer and catching up on background reading doesn't appeal, this summer job may.
Wookey Hole Caves near Wells in Somerset is looking for someone to teach visitors about witchcraft and magic.
The job advert calls for witches across the country to audition for the post, which offers a not-to-be-sniffed-at salary of Pounds 50,000 pro rata to work during school holidays, weekends, Christmas and Hallowe'en - perfect for school teachers with front of class experience, a penchant for pointy hats and a desire to earn more.
Wookey Hole Caves said: "The job is straightforward - live in the cave, be a witch and do the things witches do."
Candidates must attend an interview "in character" at the end of the month, at which the hopefuls will be expected to demonstrate their credentials, with bonus points available for making use of an array of potion ingredients provided on the day.
