I have not applied for any jobs over the weekend. I have been hung up over this wasting the time of well meaning charities thing. I was glad to get to work to discuss it with some people. The consensus was that I should continue to apply for every job. I am still not sure. However, I will definitely apply for all the jobs on the first page of the paper. After that, who knows? Should I apply for only private sector jobs?
The other day in Winchmore Hill, I was listening to Hawksbee and Jacobs. They suggested a motorway game of France v England. Norbert Dentressangle v Eddie Stobbart, how many lorries of each can you spot? It is a great game. I was kept amused from junction 26-29 of the M25. (The score was France 2 - England 0)
Anyway, despite my cat Hippy's objections, I need to get on with applying for more jobs.
Handicap International are looking for a Director. (Is handicap pc?)
They are looking to move to London in 2008.
Fantastic I can work in London. I will have:
Proven experience in the uk international development fundraising environment.
Tick. I did raise money for children in need by dressing up as a cowboy.
Proven management skills.
I can manage, thank you.
An ability to work collaboratively in an international environment.
You should have seen me in 1990 in the international drama festival.
A commitment to working with disabled people.
Excellent command of English and French.
I actually do have an excellent command of French and English.
This is the job I really want. No really. This is why I did the Degree in Eu Social Policy. I can speak French, and I know about social policy stuff. I have to send a CV and a short covering letter to Ann Van Dyck:
I am writing following your advertisement for Director.
I am extremely passionate about the issues that your institution is dealing with. I studied for a Masters in EU Social policy. We were examining the way that the EU impacts on every member state’s social policy issues.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Is that short enough?
The final job on the first page.
Do they think they are challenging me? Only two jobs? I once applied for five in one e-mail, so hang on.
You had a couple of jobs advertised in the Guardian recently.
Am I the right person?
Research Manager and Business support manager covered.
I HAVE REACHED THE END OF THE FIRST PAGE!!!!
