SALTY (OTE: $88,000 – $99,000)

Back in the day … salt was the leading method of food preservation.
(Some may argue, it’s also essential for a great night of tequila drinking – but that’s beside the point!)

On a completely other note, to be ‘worth one’s salt’ means to be worth one’s pay.

In fact, the word ‘salary’, comes from the Latin word, ‘salarium’.
Salarium was the money paid to Roman soldiers … for the purchase of salt.

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

That said … our client is looking for a Manager of Material Planning & Scheduling who is definitely ‘worth their salt’!

“CAT IN THE BAG” ($96,000 – $108,000)

You’ve heard the phrase … “let the cat out of the bag” … and you know it has to do with revealing a secret.
But where did it originate?

Well, back in the 1700’s, it was common practice for people to buy and sell piglets from one another – in bags.

Every so often … certain unscrupulous individuals would try and slip a few cats into the bag (as cats were worth far less than piglets) … to try and increase the profitability of their transaction!

Every now and then … a discerning buyer decided to verify their purchase.
When they opened the bag, the cats would leap out … and the scam was exposed!

THE ‘ALL HANDS ON DECK’ ROLE ($72,500+)

AllHandsOnDeck

Historically, and in the naval sense, the term ‘hands’ referred to the sailors on a vessel.
In the event of a storm … the ship’s captain would determine its severity and how much assistance was required to navigate through the storm.

THE ‘DOLITTLE’ ROLE (OTE: £77,000+)

MaidenheadSDR

Hugh John Lofting was born in Maidenhead, UK on January 14, 1886.
And, while he studied to be a Civil Engineer … he is famous for creating the classic children’s books, centered around the character of Doctor Dolittle.

Doctor Dolittle was a doctor who disregarded human patients in favour of animals, with whom he could speak!

Apparently … the character originally “came to life” in the letters Lofting would write to his children while he was in British Army trenches … during World War I.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s role?
Absolutely nothing!

Match and Fable’s latest role happens to be based in Lofting’s place of birth … but the successful candidate certainly won’t ‘do little’.
