I can pay £50 for a half day and £100 for a whole day (8 hours). This business is associated with a very unique project and will lead to more work in the future, including anything we don't get done in the day, take a look at

I'm Looking for keen candidates who might know or be able to acquire some of the information before we meet.

I may carry out some market research in the library with specifically designed non-intrusive questions, so need to be prepared and have the confidence for that.

I will be carrying out the research with you and we will work together, utilising the library business resources, as well as the Internet and you will also have the use of a phone.

Please get back to me with your relevant experience and a little information about yourself.

Unfortunately the only day that this can be done on is this Monday (27th), 9.00 @ Central Library. If not, but you feel you could find a lot of this information on your own, then I will listen to offers.

Many regards,
