Example Job 1

To add a new job, simply make a new job title and description underneath this entry. The job title *must* be in bold. Everything after the bold title (until the next bold job title, if there is one) will be considered part of the job description.

You can add formatting to the description as you wish - italics, lists, etc. - with the important exception of not using bold; if you use bold in the body of the description, the program will think this is the start of new job and will split your job description up.

Due to the limitations of the WYSIWYG Editor, it is strongly recommended that you write the job description in a word processor like Word first, and then paste it in after this entry. If you are using this WYSIWYG editor, it is recommended that you write the job entry completely in plain text first, and then add in any formatting after. E.g. type the job title in plain text, type the description adding any line breaks you wish, type up the lists using line breaks, and then add formatting (bolding the title, converting into a list, etc.) by highlighting the relevant text and picking the appropriate style from the top.

To remove a job, delete the job description and bolded job title. Please leave this example entry intact. If no jobs are detected, the page will automatically display the standard 'No Positions Available' text.

Please do not delete this entry. Add your first job title in bold below.
