Who wants to be a whistleblower?

 

After sixteen years of it, I've concluded that retirement is not what it's cracked up to be. A neighbour up the lane must've concluded the same as he restarted his career by becoming a Flying Fox Dispersal Officer - Grade 4.

It's a highly technical job which involves the use of torches, speakers and other noise-making devices such as banging of metal objects and blowing whistles to deter flying foxes from roosting.

Pity I didn't hear about the job earlier as I would've been eminently qualified since the Council's Employment Conditions state that they encourage people from a non-English-speaking background to apply.

Their Flying Fox Dispersal Fact Sheet mentions that further dispersal activities may take place in 2017, so there's a chance for me yet.

Becoming a whistleblower for the Council may be far more suitable for me after my dismal performance as a Bunnings Greeter.
