Thank you, I'll have a try on there. Struggling to find people to be honest!

I've noticed the job being advertised for a little while now, mainly in emails from a job site that thinks I should be an Army Dr, Nurse or HR specialist "Based on my profile"
A job agency even rang me about it - I hope it wasn't you.
