Where is it based?
Hi, just wondering where this position is based? Or is it mobile/working from home?
Value for money
Hi, I just read your advert for this role, was very interested. But for this role and the complexities that I feel the role would entail. I would feel that a higher wage would be offered.
With respect, you've lost my interest.
Hi Colin, Thanks for your interest in our role. £8.33 is our starting wage but there is potential for this to increase dependant on experience, and therefore working deeper into all aspects of this role.
