THE ‘HAPSBURG NAPKIN’ ROLE (OTE: $156,000 – $168,000)

HapsburgNapkinDofHRRole

Odds are, you’ve never heard of it.
Even so, it happens to be one of the world’s best kept secrets.

The Hapsburg Napkin’s origins trace back to the dining halls of Austro-Hungarian royalty.

Believe it or not … the instructions for the ‘royal act’ of folding the napkin are considered a top government secret in Austria!

And, while many have desperately tried to ‘crack the code’ … to date, no one has succeeded.

It’s believed, only two people in the world know the intricate directions … and they’ve sworn an oath to protect the mystery – at all costs!

There are no written instructions, anywhere. Go ahead … try and google it!
In fact, the secret is passed to a new individual only once death is imminent for one of the secret holders!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Not much really!

That said, Match and Fable’s latest mandate is for a HR Director who (by the very nature of the position) will be exposed to sensitive information and will very likely need to keep a few secrets of their own!

IronLady.png

Margaret Hilda Roberts grew up in an apartment above her family’s grocery store in Grantham, England.
A stellar student, she would eventually earn a degree in Chemistry from Oxford University.
Margaret briefly entered the world of politics … and then chose to study law, graduating in 1953.

Margaret (now Thatcher) eventually returned to politics … and became Secretary of State for Education and Science.
9 years later, she would become Britain’s first lady Prime Minister – a position she held until 1990.

A staunch conservative, Thatcher tackled delicate issues including Britain’s recession, massive privatization and the Falklands War of 1982. Remarkably, she survived an assassination attempt by the IRA in 1984!

Along with her ally, US President, Ronald Reagan … “The Iron Lady” played a key role in the weakening of Soviet Communism and the subsequent collapse of the soviet structure. It’s been said … Thatcher was more popular with the Russian people than she was in her very own country!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well, nothing really.

That said, in the spirit of The Iron Lady herself … our client is looking for an HR dynamo who knows a lot about a lot … and can contribute to their organization in a substantial way!
