THE ‘NUMEROPHOBIA’ ROLE (OTE: $60,000 – $80,000)


Believe it or not … there’s a term for people with an irrational fear of numbers!
It’s called ‘numerophobia’.

Now, we’re all pretty familiar with the superstitions surrounding numbers.

The #13 is widely considered to be unlucky. So much so, that many architects skip the 13th floor when designing their buildings.

The #666 is believed to be the sign of the devil!

And … many people prescribe to the belief; bad things happen in 3’s.
For example, lighting three cigarettes with a single match … will lead to death!

But, numerophobia is a whole new level!
Individuals stricken with this affliction fear all kinds of numbers – especially complex math equations!

So … what does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Nothing really.

That said … if you’re a numerophobe … this role definitely wouldn’t be up your alley.


As a result of business growth … our client’s organization is in need of an Underwriter to join their team.

Reporting to the Director … the successful candidate will be skillful with applications and systems … love number crunching and have a solid understanding of industry terminology.
