Are you an oil expert? ISIS are hiring...
Are you struggling to find work? If so, why not leave your parents' home and get the 'serious job' they've always wanted? On Sunday, the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) placed a job advert for a $225,000 pe year oil refinery manager position. Insiders claim that the group is experiencing problems managing oil fields captured in both Iraq and Syria, and therefore is looking for a new expert with a jaw-dropping salary.
The offer states that the successful applicant will be working under severe circumstances in probably one of the least attractive job offers in the oil industry. The extremist group has been using black market agents to advertise for the managing position according to reports.
Robin Mills, at Manaar Energy, a consultancy firm in Dubai, has confirmed the reports but believes ISIS will struggle to attract the best staff with the pay packet they are offering. He said: "The money is good, but it's not that good. A western oil exec posted to Iraq right now, let alone working for ISIS, would expect to earn a lot more than that."
ISIS militants have captured at least 12 oilfields in Iraq and Syria and has been selling the oil in the black market since June.
