Atlanta Mike is on the right lines (and may be bang on) the job is using a feature that is not installed, I have seen this on SSIS when someone didnt put the option on, the same would be true of other options services which a Job could access.

Find out what the job is attempting to do and check whether that feature is installed,

The answer is highly likely that he didn't install SSIS, his comment amedexitt: "No I have not installed it; I will install it and I will try to create the job again." Which was the answer I gave.
