The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is on the hunt for an internet troll, as China’s tensions with Australia continue to erupt.
In a job ad posted to online job site Seek, the CCP says its looking to employ a ‘content creator with experience in producing spicy political memes.’
“The new staff member would work as part of our fast-growing propaganda unit here in Beijing,” says China’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Zhao Lijian.
“Our internet trolling job is a great opportunity for a content creator with fresh ideas.”
The job ad comes after China posted to Twitter a meme using a fake photo of an Australian soldier holding a knife to a child’s throat.
“The CCP is really looking to ramp up our internet trolling,” says Zhao Lijian. “It’s a cost effective way to incite hatred and it works really well on a political level.”
Anyone interested in applying needs to submit their application by the end of this week.
