Jobs of the Week – work for Project A, Epic Companies, Kaufda or Hitfox


Summer’s nearly over and rather than spending winter miserably cooped up inside with nothing to do, get a head start on your job hunt by checking out our Jobs of the Week.


Oh, but a little tip – if you do get an interview, try not to do any of the following. Here’s a couple of our favourite “alternative” job interview tips from Michael Spicer’s concise guide:

Say “I hope to become part of the furniture here.” Then crouch into a ball pretending to be a pouffe and never move again.

When asked where you see yourself in 5 years, say “owner of a B&B for cats” and tap your nose like you know the market.
