Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary

The worst job in the world is now up for grabs – as Michael O’Leary’s apologist with budget airline Ryanair.

Current mouth piece Stephen McNamara is leaving the airline after Christmas to join the Irish Rugby Football Union.

And O’Leary is already inviting online applications for those willing to justify his airline’s controversial policies confessed publicity seeker O’Leary.

A statement from the airline added: “Stephen McNamara is moving on after four years of being battered and abused by [Ryanair CEO] Michael O’Leary on one side, and the European media on the other.”

O’Leary added: “As a company that spends little on advertising, we rely on our communications department to generate loads of free PR as well as responding to the never-ending series of absurd claims and fanciful stories that surface on a daily basis.

“We look forward to recruiting another brave soul to take on the worst job in Irish PR and look forward to grooming the next candidate to take over the high profile and incredibly overpaid position.”

Anyone willing to take on O’Leary and the job is invited to send a CV and cover letter to recruitment@ryanair.com quoting vacancy number FRHOC001. Applications close on Friday evening at 5:30pm.
