There’s a term for people who have an irrational fear of numbers – it’s called ‘arithmophobia’! We’ve all heard of superstitions with the number 13 (unlucky) or say, 666 (the sign of the devil). However, true ‘arithmophobes’ fear all kinds of numbers – especially complex math equations. So, what does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role? Nothing really.
That said, if you’re an ‘arithmophobe’ this definitely is NOT the position for you! And, while we have your attention, Chantel Nightingale is looking for a Senior Accounting Technician in Hamilton.
