[Job, Belfast] Diabetes UK, Media & Campaigns Mgr (mat cover), ??22-27k, clos 11 April 2012

Hopefully everyone is familiar with the nifty shortcut trick on how to search the ScicommJobs Posterous database to see previous jobs from a particular organisation, but if not, you need to type exactly the following into Google:

site:scicommjobs.posterous.com “Diabetes UK”

which will give you these results. Of course you can search Posterous too but Google search is better and given that Twitter has now taken over Posterous I expect their search will get even worse 😉
