is the job section not getting much traffic then? confused

DingbatsFur Tue 08-Dec-15 17:15:36

Why are they always based in England?

catsofa Tue 08-Dec-15 22:46:24

One of those doesn't even pay a salary.

00100001 Tue 08-Dec-15 22:49:03

Lion tamer? Witch?

I notice they require uni degree's ,yet the main thing they need is people skills, - which if you have spent 25 years in school you are unlikely to have ? - it would be better to recruit ex-fraudsters just out of prison.

original Ever since I was little, I've always dreamed of being a Non-Exec Board Member... isn't that every little girl's dream? fgrin

One of them isn't even a clickable link.

I guess if I wanted it enough I'd c&p

I don't though.

Miserable lot. I want to be a fraud detector. I can detect fraud when DS says he's washed his hands, when DH says he'll just be 5 more minutes, and when the cat says she's starving and hasn't been fed for days. I'd be perfect.

YellowTulips Wed 09-Dec-15 23:26:31

It would help if you included the location.....but even before clicking the links I suspect they are all south of Watford gap

senua Thu 10-Dec-15 09:30:07

even before clicking the links I suspect they are all south of Watford gap

I suspected that, too, but someone seems to have had the sense to showcase jobs from around England the country.
But, yes, the jobs noticeboard is usually SE-heavy which is why I don't look at it very often.

thatstoast Thu 10-Dec-15 16:43:06

Also, salaries would help. Competitive, my arse. In defence of fraud detectors, I would be interested in that role if it weren't 300 miles away.

PetraDelphiki Thu 10-Dec-15 17:53:33

How about finding us some part time/location flexible stuff too...there's a huge pool of women who would like to work around school hours...which rather precludes full time commuting positions!!

pretend Thu 10-Dec-15 19:37:04

Yes that's it - mumsnet is able to provide every member with the perfect highly paid job that fits round school hours....

Then again, maybe not. Quit bitching and find your own bloody job!

Settle down pretend

AmyMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 11-Dec-15 17:11:31

Hi folks, thanks for all your feedback; we'll keep in it mind when selecting jobs in the future. Out of interest, is there anything else you think we're missing here, in terms of useful top-level information?

00100001 Fri 11-Dec-15 17:15:25

On this post, or in jobs in general?

HeadDreamer Fri 11-Dec-15 19:48:09

I would say location and salary range. It's standard in my indistry to advertise a range. I won't bother looking at an ad if the range doesn't go a bit higher than I'm paid now.

HeadDreamer Fri 11-Dec-15 19:49:20

I mean salary range in the summary before the ad. That's if the salary is advertised. I see the second one does.

M48294Y Fri 11-Dec-15 21:14:10

Amy - don't have such boring jobs! Surely a person wishing to work for Tesco could find a way in to that organisation without Mumsnet.

bittapitta Sat 12-Dec-15 07:39:40

amy application deadlines, I clicked through to one and the deadline had passed. No point in posting it a day before it closes.

silvermantela Sat 12-Dec-15 08:58:19

Bobandkate what a weird message! Firstly, full time primary and secondary education plus degree would usually take 17 years, not 25.Plus, you do understand that even the privatest of private schools rarely have one to one teaching - most education is taught in fairly large classes and involves constant interaction with both teachers/lecturers and peers, so a fairly good way of developing 'people skills.' But I bet you went to the university of life, didn't you wink
Irt the actual post, agree salaries would be useful.

Shockers Sat 12-Dec-15 09:21:16

I always have a look hoping to see something wonderfully creative, flexible and, most importantly, based in Lancashire wink.

YeOldeTrout Sat 12-Dec-15 09:25:37

I like the fraud one, too, but 5 hrs travel time for me so no can do.

GCHQ, Leadership skills? Eeek. Don't have any raw potential there.
