"They say there’s dragons guardin’ the high-security vaults"
-- Rubeus Hagrid (PS5)
Notes and interesting facts
The stated requirements are few - no previous experience or academic qualifications. Potential candidates need to apply in writing (DP2).
They also require the names of the applicant's next of kin (DP2) - it certainly sounds as if the successful candidates don't last long in the post.
Harry doesn't see any of the dragons who guard the vaults in Gringotts the first time he visits with Hagrid, although he thought something might be "a burst of fire at the end of a passage" that could have been one (PS5).
Although the date printed on the second Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP2) is 8 February 1999, the timeframe for this event (advertisment) is 1992-1993.
