    Axe is unemployed, and from what I recall, has excellent qualifications.
    This would definitely be a feather in his cap!

    Of course, the location is probably entirely wrong

    Sorry!

    Please ignore my larking about - this is actually a very very good opotunity for someone and a worthwhile cause to boot. Good luck to all who apply and I'm lucky meny here I'm envious because I'm not in a position to apply.

    If it wasn't for the fact I couldn't survive in the centre of london without pay I would be applying for this. Very worthwhile cause.
