Are you motivated? Love challenges? Mossad wants YOU!

April 19, 2013 10:25 IST

Israel's espionage agency Mossad has launched an online recruitment campaign appealing for creative people who love challenges to apply for an "interesting, out of the ordinary and dynamic job".

The new campaign, under the slogan "with enemies like this -- friends are needed," directs people to the Mossad's website and to the long list of professions the agency desires to enlist.

The site notes, "If you have courage, wisdom and ingenuity, you can influence and actualise a national and personal mission. If you have the ability to move, fascinate and motivate people, you may be made of the quality material we are looking for".

"If you have all of these, the Mossad is open to you," it adds.

Amongst other things, the ad mentions that "challenge-loving people are needed for an interesting, unconventional and dynamic position. The job entails living in Israel with short and numerous trips abroad. Unconventional lifestyle. One-year training period."

In what seems to be one of the largest campaigns the espionage agency has conducted in years, the advertisement features across social media networks.

The kind of professionals required includes people who have served in military Intelligence units, language-speakers (especially Persian and Arabic), foreign language teachers, hi-tech professionals, chemists, laboratory assistants, graphic designers, lawyers, clinical psychologists, warehousemen and even carpenters.
