Journalism job opportunity – yes, really

My friend Robin Brown has a seriously interesting opportunity for a web-literate journalist/ journo graduate with an interest in cars at Motortorque, the online magazine bit of motoring website Askaprice.com. Not the kind of thing I’d usually blog about, but I know how tricky it can be to find out about these things at the moment.

Working under editor Robin in Liverpool’s vibrant city centre, you’ll be carving out a career as the next Jeremy Clarkson. He’ll want a grafter, but you’ll be the Associate Editor on a commercially successful site and get a leg up in an exciting sector. Please note, he needs someone to get started in January.
