In the house legal chaps, absolutely. Ever sat in on a conference call with them?


#427

And it isn’t even me blaming them.

Nobody wants to be dragged in front of some committee for wasting tax payers money.


#428

It’s not as if they’d lose their job though.


#429

A lot of it is also to do with everything being capable of being FOi’d too


#430

AP competition starts this week as well. Might as well fire my application in for that as well


Insolvency
#431

Are public sector pensions all they are cracked up to be these days?


#432

I’ll let you know in about 30 years when I’m living off mrs J’s.


#433

No


#434

Nope. Average salary type of thing now. Work til 65.

The old type isn’t great for the low paid either. 12k or whatever of it is state pension.


#435

Any of you kids in the media advertising game?


#436

Yes


#437

Ok I’ll take you at your word. What would a typical 30 second slot cost for a regional radio station. I’ll explain my questions later assuming you’re not wumming me


#438

Offline media is dead money.


#439

Mac is talking through his hole. Local radio is perfect for a certain market.


#440

Get a few good digital influencers such as Niall Harbison or @ChocolateMice to call down a take a few snapchats of you product, they’ll sell like fuck. 5k well spent.

Look I’ve been approached by a regional radio station and have been asked if I would be interested in a senior sales role. But rather then fucking about I need to have some figures in my head. I’ve been involved in sales most of my working life so topping a decent basic off with commission is part and parcel.of what I do. All the usual.perks apply. Car , health insurance etc, but a car don’t pay the mortgage


#442

Have a look at medialive.ie


#443

Thank you


#444

He’s wumming you

Everything you hear about offline media sales is that it’s a dying market. Granted local radio is good for certain businesses I can’t imagine them businesses being able to pay top dollar for advertising space. I’d say ads on local radio are cheap enough.
