THE ruthless Saudi government is beheading so many people it needs to recruit a deadly new squad of sword-wielding executioners.

The news comes after it slaughtered 37 people in one bloody day last week meaning it is now tipped to kill a record number of its citizens in 2019.

The Sharia law-run state has advertised for eight new executioners to handle the projected rise in brutal public beheadings.

No special qualifications are needed for the jobs whose main role is “executing a judgement of death” but also involves performing amputations on those convicted of lesser offences.

The macabre job advert was reportedly posted on the country's civil service jobs portal.

Saudi Arabia has one of the world’s highest rates of execution: suspects convicted of terrorism, homicide, rape, armed robbery and drug trafficking face the death penalty.

It has carried out nearly 600 executions since the start of 2014, more than a third of them in drug cases.

More than 140 people were put to death in the kingdom last year, where convicts are usually beheaded using a huge curved sword.

Public beheadings will typically take place around 9am when the convicted person is walked into a square and made to kneel in front of the executioner.

The executioner uses a sword known as a sulthan to remove the condemned person's head from his or her body at the neck.

Statisticians have now projected more than 170 will be put to the sword this year - a record for modern times.
