Job hunters baffled as advert lists ‘year of depression’ as essential experience

A job hunter took to TikTok bewildered by a company that listed "depression" under essential experience for a £30,000 a year job in London.

In a TikTok video, shared by @sirniku, the job applicant filmed a job description they found on Indeed.

They noticed the advert had a bizarre requirement listed under "essential."

The bloke, who has gained more than 31,000 likes, said in the clip: "You're not gonna believe this job description I've just seen.

"To get this job, you need an approachable personality, minimum of two years of experience, working proficiently in a team and one year of depression."

He didn't film the company or the position title in the video – but it was visible that the annual salary ranges between £25,000 and £30,000 and is based in London.

In the caption, he added: "Think a position in HR just opened up."

Hundreds of viewers took to the comments in hysterics over what is believed to be a typo – or at least, hope is one.

One user quipped: "Finally, a job I'm overqualified for."

Another joked: "Is one year depression the exact figure or does it matter if I've had 34?"

A third said: "What's the job? Asking for me."

"Lol that must be some typing mistake," a fourth wrote.

The news comes after a woman who was applying for a new job was left mortified when she realised she had made a critical error on the cover page of her CV.

In a hilarious video, uploaded by TikTok user @marissasid21, she shows herself with her head in her hands as she reels in shock from the embarrassing mistake.
