[CLOSED] Royal Soc. Chemistry, Programme Mgr – Science Team x2, ??30.5-33.9k, closed 20 Aug 2012

Because these jobs are closed and the job descriptions already removed from the RSC's website I had to employ minor geek skills to recover them from cache. I opened up the source code for the advert (Ctrl+U in Firefox), noted the names of the deleted files (eg "<a href="/images/prg-mgr-physical-science-rd_tcm18-220981.pdf" title="">Programme Manager – Science Team Inorganic Role Descriptor</a>") and googled for each one. Once found I used the 'quick view' option to open a cached version, saved it to Google Docs and downloaded it as a PDF before uploading it here. Of course I could have just emailed them and asked for copies, but this is more fun. More details on exactly what I did here http://brodiesnotes.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/how-to-find-deleted-files-using-google.html – I use this quite a lot when I come across a job that's closed but where I still want to save a copy of the relevant information.
