    You'd make a perfect MOD contractor then.

    Did I just say that? Surely not. PFIs and PPPs are wonderfully worthwhile and benefitial systems that fill our country with joy.
  3. Just bluff your way through it.By the time they find out,your contract will be over anyway.
  4. £250 a day?! Wouldn't get out of bed for that!

    They're being a little demanding for that sort of money.
  5. I am guessing that's why the post is vacant.
  6. You are lucky if you can understand the jargon used in modern job descriptions. I saw one a couple of years ago regarding the job I was doing at the time. It really did sound impressive but nearly all of it was hardly every day stuff. I recently saw a job advertised as Civil Enforcement Officer. Visions of serving summonses etc appeared. It turned out to be a Parking attendant's position.
