    Leading online portal brelson.com is currently recruiting a Head of Dilemmas.

    The Head of Dilemmas is responsible for resolving all problems where two or more possible solutions exist, but none are practically acceptable. A proven track record in horn resolution, rock/hard-place avoidance and strategic rumination is essential, while experience of handling trilemmas and paradoxes is advantageous but not necessary.

    As the Head of Dilemmas you will report to the Director of Indecision and will work closely alongside the Head of Quandaries as well as smaller teams focusing on Riddles, Pickles, Stumpers and Crises.
