|I seem to have missed where this job is based. There are three other jobs advertised on their vacancies page, two of which specifically mention London but this one doesn’t. Not sure what conclusion to draw from that…
Ignore that, I’ve just actually looked at the information below and it clearly states Location: London 😉 Duh.
Bit of press, campaign-y stuff, magazines, internal comms. They’re also on Twitter at http://twitter.com/lunguk although I’m not sure I approve of sending the same message (about a letter in the Guardian) to lots of different people, seems a bit spammy – but it might actually be really effective.
Anyway, interesting and important work 🙂
