Can you come up with a highfalutin job title that totally hides what you actually do?

Thought of one today whilst held up at road works.
'Traffic flow coordination facilitator'
Reality Stop-Go board operator.

My favourite is
"train environment and hygiene facilitator"

carriage cleaner to you and me!

And i'll not say which line uses them - London to Brighton only has "train environment operators, facilitators and managers" - they don't care about hygiene  :2funny:

I once worked in the service department of a large Hi Fi shop when people used to by separates to make up a system. My job was to get everything together including all the leads and speaker cable and test it all before handing it all over to the customer. My title " Senior Systems Makeup Engineer "  I was Senior because I had a young YTS to help me. Needless to say he was " Junior Systems Makeup Engineer ".  When I was at school we were told that Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his like were " Engineers " not the guy from Currys who plugs in your new washing machine.

I later worked for the local electricity board and became just an " Electrician ".......... :legit:

My official job title used to be "Toolpusher". It certainly got me some laughs.
BTW It is someone in charge of drilling (oil/gas) operations.
