Here is the text of the "advert". I note it has expired on 21/09/2014 same date it went up. Odd no?
Is this for real or is it a hoax?? to try and make protesters and indymedia look stupid?
I would guess the latter. Funny guy Jay! :-)

This is a dirty fight and as always in such fights, there will be disinformation. Careful folks!

Job Type Contract

Experienced Security Officers wanted for assignments within the greater Dublin area.

This role will involve the protection of Irish Water contractors as well as the safeguarding of Irish Water/GMC Sierra equipment and vehicles. The protection of Irish Water contractors and their equipment has now been safeguarded as a result of a recent High Court injunction.

This role involves security personnel adhering to/complying with this injunction in order to ensure that all Irish Water staff & contractors are allowed work in a safe and secure environment - free from violence, threats, hindrance and obstruction

This is a role which will involve much conflict and all applicants for this role must have completed formal and accredited training in conflict management and resolution.

He/she should be able to resolve conflicts in a passive manner using one's words and body language. When this option cannot be utilized; physical force may become necessary, therefore the ideal candidate must have completed accredited training in self defence and control & restraint.

All applicants must have at least 5 years of full-time experience in the Irish or British security industry and must be licensed by the Private Security Authority as both a Door Supervisor and Static Guard.

All applicants must have completed intermediate level (or higher) first aid training and must be prepared to undertake additional training in first aid as part of the 3.5 day induction training program for this position.

Individuals with prior police and/or military experience will be given primary consideration.

We currently require 28 personnel to provide a protection service for Irish Water contractors in areas of the country where there will be hostilities from organized protest groups.

All applicants must be physically fit and will have to undertake a medical examination by a doctor (this should only take an hour or so and will include blood samples)

Excellent communication skills (verbal, non verbal and written) are required for this specialist role.

Personnel will work in team of between 5 and 10 depending on the risk potential.

The hourly rate ranges from 15.50 to 21.50 euro (depending on experience and whether you will be working as a team leader) and this is in conjunction to additional pay for the surpassing of targets.

Please understand that this is a highly complex role and it is not for the faint hearted.

Apply now with your CV & covering letter in the strictest confidence (privacy is expected by both the applicant and the recruiter)
