Here's a good one.

"Retail Stores Project Team Manager"

Any idea what they do?

No, me neither. All I know is the company I work for has several of them, and its something to do with IT.

There was a time they'd be called

"IT <insert actual description of job here>"

Pointless job titles, anyone?

There used to be a Civil Service grade of 'Senior Chief Clerical Officer'. No one could work out where they stood in the pecking order though.

One of the senior grades was 'Assistant Secretary' even though it sounds more like someone who should be making the typist's tea. ;)

Employment Philosopher

(Title awarded to himself by a colleague of my wife's. No one had a clue what it meant - including the philosopher, I suspect. I think he's really a personnel officer....)
