    HEXUS.net is looking for technology reviewers – do you have what it takes?

    HEXUS is looking for full-time technical writers who:

    • have a thorough background knowledge of computer technology and trends

    • can write insightful, informative and interesting articles and reviews

    • are self-motivated, driven and enquiring

    Previous experience of benchmarking and hardware testing is preferred but not essential as training will be given.

    Applicants should ideally live within commuting distance of our Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, offices, possess a full driving license and their own transport.

    In the first instance, your application should reach us by e-mail only, setting out why you think you make the grade and accompanied by an up-to-date CV, sent to recruitment@HEXUS.net.

    The closing date for applications is 28/02/10.

    Please provide your full name, date of birth, current residential address and your residential and mobile telephone numbers. Please also include any relevant experience you may have to support your application, professional or otherwise and let us know your realistic salary expectations.

    Re: HEXUS.net is looking for technology reviewers – do you have what it takes?

    In a slightly predictable twist, I would like to volunteer my garage or one of the 4 sheds (Four. Count 'em*) in my new house to store any cutting edge stuff you have lying around, if you need some extra space.

    *crosses fingers*

    *The four sheds takes a bit of explanation. The previous houseowner was a combination of horder, octagenarian, horticulturist, bee keeper and, if the crap he's left behind is anything to go by, croquet enthusiast. Normally, on moving into a house with 4 sheds, my first thought would be "Serial killer!", but I've checked thoroughly, and there are no hidden panels, no carpets covering blood stains, no freaky harness type things, and only a few ball gags.

    If I were only a little younger/didn't have a full time job/didn't drive & oh yeah, not live in Scotland!
    If you need any DB2 help just let me know

    Are there any jobs going to 'dispose' of the tech you review then have no need for? I'd be willing to do that for you, nice of me isn't it?

    The words DRIVEN are key here guys... in a busy, exciting and hectic lifestyle, keeping focused on the JOB in hand and not on the forum's or uTube/Facebook are essential.

    Proper good opporutunity for someone, but (scary mode /on) you gotta be ready to work, learn and dig in deep.

    Everyone,

    Please stop PM'ing me.

    Direct any questions to the email address in the OP. As of just now I've responded to everyone who has sent me a PM but we need to keep an accessible record of all communications, so it's email only from now on.

    Any PMs about the position will not receive a response.

    Cheers,

    Nick

    Re: HEXUS.net is looking for technology reviewers – do you have what it takes?

    I'd love to, however when I put my sane hat on, reality slaps me in the face.
    No car, never learnt to drive and my written english is just not up to it (spell checker only gets you so far.)

    Good luck to thoes of you who do go for it.

    Re: HEXUS.net is looking for technology reviewers – do you have what it takes?

    No it wasn't, I said my written english isn't good, I'm borderline dyslexic.

    Not really the best candidate for a type journalist.
