Irish Magazine seeks ‘Currant Affairs’ expert

Ah the English language. It’s true to say that not of all of us have the same urbane, velvety command of the tongue as someone like Stephen Fry, but one would assume that if you were placing an advertisement on for ‘The Most Famous Political Magazine In Ireland’ which is seeking a ‘Budding Advertising Sales Executive’ then you would, you know, being part of the magazine business, employ someone who can construct a sentence that makes sense.

‘This job is for the person that knows if they were given the right opportunity, they would knock the ball out of Croker; then sign it and give it back to their old boss.’

You would also, I assume, make sure that whoever wrote the copy for an advertisement trying to fill a position which requires a good grasp of ‘Current Affairs’ could spell it correctly:

‘The first to break a big story and at the cutting thrust of currant affairs this is a high brow, high profile national brand…’

Know how to use a hyphen? Don’t talk like a marketing wanker coming down off Saturday’s pills? Think you have what it takes? Apply here…
