This has actually generated a fair bit of interest so far, we had a 1st round of interviews the other week but none of the candidates' progressed due to a lack of actual educational experience.. there is also an opportunity to earn extra by the way of end-of-year bonuses & other benefits.. just the "way of the market' right now i guess.. But thanks for your comments anyway Tony
