I swear I knew this English word but no longer remember. There is a rarely used single word (rare in newspapers/articles that I read) that means ’an easy source of good income that does not require much effort’ in other words ‘an easy job’. What is that word?

  • Perhaps a plum job, as defined by Urban Dictionary: "An easy and pleasant job that also pays well." (note that the other unrelated definitions on that page are quite vulgar...)

Maybe Sinecure:

AHD sinecure

a position or office that requires little or no work but provides a salary.

[From Medieval Latin (beneficium) sine cūrā, (benefice) without cure (of souls) : Latin sine, without + Latin cūrā, ablative of cūra, care; see CURE.]

  • Thanks Jack! Lord Bless! That was it.
