Adapted from Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski’s best-selling novels, The Witcher TV series follows Geralt of Rivia (played by Henry Cavill), a solitary monster hunter who takes down scary beasts for money. The books have also been successfully made into video games, with the franchise ranking amongst the highest-grossing on PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
Fans of the show now have the opportunity to apply for a job working on set in the role of “Associate Witcher, Security.”
The job post reads: “Are you a self-motivated, results-oriented lone wolf? Do you have a passion for problem-solving and monster-slaying (literally and figuratively)? Does the intersection of a silver sword with magical beasts excite you? If so, read on for an exciting job opportunity from Netflix!”
Expanding on the role, Netflix says the candidate will be “one of many witchers responsible for the tracking and removal of all manners of monsters, beasts, demons, rogues, and more,” and that they, “must have your own equipment! A horse, two swords, and a variety of potions are a must, while armours, chains, and other tools are recommended.”
The perfect candidate will need to “hold a four-year degree from an accredited Witcher school or have equivalent life experience,” and “be able to lift several hundred pounds overhead repeatedly.”
They must also “have an innate understanding of the lesser evil and the greater good,” among other things.

The show arrived to huge praise, with one fan saying it “makes ‘Game of Thrones’ look like two drunks fighting”
“I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri,” she said, before teasing the “different” approach they will be taking on the new episodes.
“Season one is all about world set-up,” she said. “It’s making sure that you understand The Continent, where this world takes place. And that you also know and fall in love with these characters. Season two then allows us to have a little more focused storytelling. The story, Tomek can tell you, goer fast and wild. It’s got a lot of drive to it.”
No official release date for season two of The Witcher has been announced.
