Fantastic opportunities in Scotland!!

This email, from someone I know to be genuine, appeared in my inbox.

Almost worth relocating for, but....

So I'm passing it on in the hope that someone here may benefit.

I'm unlikely to find out when the positions are no longer available, so if anyone finds out that they are, please let me know.

Good luck - and if anyone is lucky enough to get one of these jobs, you owe me a treatment :-) (Just joking)
