What’s in a name? Quite a lot if you’re an S&M coordinator or an expert upsetter.

    Whilst not the weirdest, not so long ago, in a role not so far away I had a title that certainly made people go "Oh, really?". I looked after training and compliance in a payroll outsourcing space - I was the "Manager for Excellence."

    I once wrote job descriptions for a 'Boring Officer' and a 'Senior Boring Officer'

    Hmm, HCMag perhaps you should look closer to home, you employ people with the job title "Trafficker" :)

    Some abbreviations for jobs can be amusing. The school my kids go to have a Head of Learning, commonly referred to internally as HOL. Assistant is usually abbreviated to Ass, and of course there's an Assistant Head of Learning ;)

    I worked with a Senior Community Resource Officer - Temporary Unit Manager. Not a good acronym either.

    Wonder if its a coincidence that most of the position titles have sexual innuendo to them?

    I don't have a position title to share but I had a direct report who once worked with a Jenna Taylor.

    I write recruitment ads for a living and worked for a number of IT companies who recruited Analyst Programmers.

    Many of them wanted this abbreviated to 'Anal Programmers' in their ads. I had to point out what this looked like on paper...
