The York­shire will know that is no fan of Post Di­ary jar­gon in any shape or form.

That is why we were sad­dened to hear that Leeds was named in the top ten of David Brent-es­que hot spots for man­age­ment speak.

AdView sought out the most of­fend­ing ‘Jar­gon Job’ cities and which buzz­words plague our job­search­ing the most.

Leeds came in fifth be­hind the City of Lon­don, Wok­ing, Read­ing and Belfast. ‘Proac­tive’, ‘dy­namic’ and ‘self-starter’ are ex­am­ples of jar­gon that dom­i­nate job ad­verts.

We did, how­ever, note with amuse­ment that Brent’s home­town of Slough placed eighth in the list of shame, a clear sign of life im­i­tat­ing art.
