A lot of people are fans of James Bond movies, the latest one being Skyfall. Well, the U.K. government actually listed a job posting for a 007 agent, according to a report.

The said job posting reads like this:


Security and surveillance

Job Type

Full Time

Years of Experience

5+ years

Career Level

Experienced (Non-Manager)

Education Level

Under graduate degree


50,000.00 to 60,000.00 per year

Performance bonuses on completion of missions

Job Reference Code


Contact Information


The supposed job perks for this job includes jet packs, mini submarines, and yes, a Walther PPK pistol.

The job would have been a dream job for many of the prospective applicants, but unfortunately, the posting was taken down after just a few hours it was posted online at the U.K. government's jobs board. Apparently, that job posting was a total joke, or was it?

Latest buzz is, an investigation is now underway for the employee who posted this very James-Bondish secret agent job.

Would you take that job if it was true? Or you would rather work for the CIA or the FBI if you'll be given the choice?
