Well, I know it says full time, but you never know how full time, full time is until you have a looksee. They're not too specific about much at all really, so I can't help but apply, at least.
If it floats your boat then go for it!

In my experience those that gloss over pay and remuneration generally aren't in a position to use the salary to tempt candidates, hence the absence of the filthy lucre in the ad. Not even vague straplines such as "Salary- £££ competitive £££".

Here's hoping it's a double bluff then :thumbsup:

@smutchin might have some insight into that side of the industry. I expect writers aren't that well paid (as journalism & cycling industry generally)

Can't help but think they've got the kit testing model wrong. They want someone fulltime. How much stuff are they testing?

Why not reach out to keen cyclists who would ride and test in their spare time?

Mmm, I expect you're right TBH, but having worked in finance for the best part of 15 years, I'm ever so slightly bored & incredibly dissillusioned with it xx(. I'd actually like to train to become a bus driver, or do something a bit more manual orientated, but I love writing (2 books completed and another about to be started...neither taken as far as even seeking publication as of yet...long story, but the 3rd needs to go out before the 1st two - couldn't write it without having the 1st two formed though :crazy:) and love cycling, so if I could get two things like that going at the same time, it might make both more pheasable for me, which is why I want to know more about the 'full time' thing. If you can do what you love & get paid for it, it's worth more than anything, I think.

Bus driving's a lark. If more people knew how nice it was, especially for private carriers like corporations and hospitals and nursing homes and care centers, they'd do that rather than what they're doing. Not the perfect job, but I have no complaints.

"It is a full-time position, based at our offices in Croydon"

How quaint.

It's 2015, couldn't they cast their net a bit (lot) wider and make it remote working?

I'm out, their loss ;)
