On behalf of the Board of the International Institute of Communications may I thank you for kindly submitting details of your experience for the post of Director General at the Institute.

We had a number of applicants and it was very hard to get to a reasonable short list. We have chosen three whose experience pattern is very close to what we require so I regret that we will not be able to take your own application forward at this time.
We do wish you success in your search for a suitable post.

Best regards,

Sebastian Mann
Projects Executive
International Institute of Communications

Regent House

I applied for this job on the 3rd October. They are the Institute of Communications, so they must have had to talk about it for a while. However, six weeks could be considered procrastination.

I have been checking flights to Frankfurt. I feel that I have to go. It would be wrong of me to warrant Patrick Meiier of ACM markets a visit in Geneva, and leave out Klaus Brune, from Dow Jones.

I wonder how leathery the sofa is in the foyer of their building.

I could go this weekend; I have a day off on Friday. I asked Nicky, but she did not seem interested, I might have to go on my own. Maybe I should wait until Klaus has considered my application.

On with the jobs...

UCL want a Manager of the Multimedia Unit ABD 5/10/07.

The Shoreditch Trust wants a Marketing, Arts and Events Assistant. The interview date was 22nd October 2007. This is a charity, so I would not have applied. However, I was in Shoreditch only last week at a property that I manage. I like the area, and Nicky is an Art Teacher.

No, it is a charity, move on.

The Courtauld Institute of Art want an Education Programmes Co-ordinator. Interview date 19/10/07. See above.

The British Red Cross want several campaigns people:

'c.24K incl. ILW dependent on experience.'

Language evolves.

University of London want a Head of Internal Communications and External Relations. Interviews 15 October 2007.

Lime Pictures wanted a Broadcast Engineer to work on Hollyoaks. ABD 5/10/07.

What is a Stakeholder Engagement Officer? Tower Hamlets wanted three of them, but they all had to apply by the 12/10/07.

This page is not looking good on the application front. No jobs applied for so far.

Breakthrough Breast Cancer has again brightened up my day with their purple advert. Community Fundraising Executive. Please feel free to donate money to these people.

Anyway, Lenny's ear has more or less completely healed. I wonder when the fur will grow back over it though. He does look a bit odd with one bald ear.

The chain smoking spider has given up the ghost for the winter, it is too cold.
