Skirt looking for a ‘bold and beautiful’ agency

In a clever case of role reversal, one anonymous agency strategist has put herself on the market as a “skirt for hire”.  

She’s popped up on Twitter, created a blog and posted a job ad on Mumbrella, where she writes: “An opportunity for a bold and beautiful agency has arisen, with a senior skirt now available for hire.”

Specialising in communications, marketing, PR and social media, the Skirt launched her recruitment push last week.

The only hint of who she is, is the fact that she works in Melbourne, she’s done in-house comms for government departments and a not-for-profit organisation. And she’s also had experience in issues management, having worked for the Victorian Department of Health.

And she’s not shy either, telling prospective agencies: “If you are interested in finding out more about this rare opportunity to hire one of Melbourne’s most dedicated skirts, apply immediately as our client is keen to appoint the right agency as soon as possible.”
