Hi all,

Further to this topic subject it has become apparent that the  
Corporate Resourcing department requires the services of a full time

Should you suggest someone who ends up being offered the job and  
staying in the role for a minimum of 1 year (with no formal warnings)  
I will be more than happy to give you the money for a drink from my  
finder's fee.

Job summary follows.


Pretend Office, a dynamic and forward-thinking company at the  
forefront of what it usually does, has a full time vacancy in a new  
position of Word Formatter. You will be required to apply rigid house  
styles as formatting to Word documents produced by our busy team.

We are looking for an enthusiastic self-starter willing to work hard
