Job Spec:

* Your role will be to work daily for 8 hours per day collecting sales leads and populating a google docs sheet for our business. We are flexible on working times but a good portion of that 8 hours must fall between the hours of 9am GMT to 5pm GMT so they we can contact you.

* You will be given website links, documents, or information in a variety of forms which we will post into basecamp (our project management tool) and assign to you. Applying some common sense ensuring the correct information is obtained, you are to populate a google docs sheet for us. Emphasis for us is on both QUALITY and SPEED.

Our budget is currently 100 GBP per month. A per lead fee will be paid and you will have daily targets to hit (at least 200 records per day).

2) Explain one role in which you did similar work in the past. use no more than 500 characters in your answer.

3) Imagine we gave you a job to enter in sales leads and one of the fields you needed to store was "country" (entering in where the sales leads country of origin was). the leads will be used to send out mass newsletters to these potential customers. When entering this country in it is important for effective data entry to enter in "Great Britain" instead of "GB" or "England" because:

a) The data entered should be "normalised" so that when sending out newsletters its easy to filter recipients by their country.

b) Great Britain is the official and correct name for England, Scotland, Wales and part of Ireland so its important to use the correct name for this.

c) Its due to the well known marketing "Rule of Jasona" which suggests that recipients will respond better to data that contains a politically correct name.

d) Its easier to type Great Britain

Please indicate the one correct answer below in your answer.

4) Finish off this sentance. "I think that when doing data entry its important to enter all telephone numbers in the same way, for example 00447767656453, because... (YOUR ANSWER)"
