What do you do? Maybe someone on here knows someone who's hiring?
PR and communications mainly. I also wrote business proposals, but the market for that is pretty small. I was a journalist at ITP for the best part of two years, so I have a contact list to die for.

I could ask, but I know it wouldn't happen. I've been there when people have looked to return and I know the attitude management takes to it.

Anyway, PM your contact details Scamp and I'll send you my CV. You might be able to help.
