Occupations where competence is a rarity, let's 'ave 'em
I’d say that if a recruiter is still in a job, as it’s a commission based and performance driven role, he MUST be competent. He may upset you, not make you feel special and maybe not even find you a job, but he must be finding people jobs and generating fees or else he’d be sacked quick sharp.Posted 4 years agoMSPSubscriber
TBF, any job title that ends with ‘agent’ has to be a strong contender.

Clergy of all religions… even if there is a god of some kind, none of them has provided proof, even with millenia of opportunity;
global peace and harmony is also somewhat lacking
and what about the choirboys?
In their favour, some religious organizations have done well at accumulating vast sums of money and power…Posted 4 years agoavdave2Member
The vast majority of MoD logistics/store keeper people
When i worked for the MoD I went to the stores on one occasion to obtain something with my requisition filled in in quintuplicate only to be told that I couldn’t have what I wanted as there was only one left. But I only want one I said. Ah but if we give you it we’ll have none left and were the stores.Posted 4 years ago
They also used to open up the large boxes of photographic paper rolls for the mini-printers with sharp knives that would render the whole roll fogged.SD-253Member

University academics might just sneak in here! I was one once and many of my colleagues, though relatively competent in their own subject area, were completely useless in every other respect.
An amusing example:-
Man walking along a road in the countryside comes across a shepherd and a huge flock of sheep. Tells the shepherd, “I will bet you £100 against one of your sheep that I can tell you the exact number in this flock.” The shepherd thinks it over; it’s a big flock so he takes the bet. “965,” says the man. The shepherd is astonished, because that is exactly right. Says “OK, I’m a man of my word, take an animal.” Man picks one up and begins to walk away.
“Wait,” cries the shepherd, “Let me have a chance to get even. Double or nothing that I can guess your exact occupation.” Man says sure. “You are an economist for a government think tank,” says the shepherd. “Amazing!” responds the man, “You are exactly right! But tell me, how did you deduce that?”
“Well,” says the shepherd, “put down my dog and I will tell you.”Posted 4 years ago
