The news is likely to send shockwaves through the European Union (EU) as officials desperately try to keep the eurozone together.The crisis-hit single currency area has seen unemployment rise from 11.2 per cent to 11.3 per cent as it scrambles to recover from recent banking failures.

One of the duties of the deputy assistant would be to feed cash into the machines that separate genuine and fake notes.

The 85,000 people were eventually whittled down to 8,000 as a shortlist.
