I gleaned these job titles from those that were being used by employers in the advertisements that were listed before I added to the collection. I suppose it's inevitable that employers will think of even more creative ways of describing what their people do. However, I hope these cover much of the ground. If you think of more please tell me.

Incidentally this added 29 items to the list. Unfortunately several of them relate to software rather than employment or careers. It can be difficult to filter them out in the absence of occupational codes in advertisements.
