In December 2006 and January 2007, we interviewed a number of candidates for our new Web Developer's post (see advert below) and are now pleased to announce the appointment of
to the post, who moved to Laggan for the job with his wife Riitta in February. Markku, from Finland, left his current position with IBM near Glasgow to fulfil his goal of living and working in the Scottish Highlands. He has had a wide experience of developing websites using PHP and MySQL, plays the guitar and is fond of the music of Sibelius (of course!), Stravinsky, Shostakovich and Borodin. He also likes cats and dogs!
The Spartan job ad, previously on with Monster.co.uk and JobServe.com, looked like this:-
By way of contrast to programming, the job can be tailored to include some other less intensive and more varied roles associated with the running of a busy music publishing company. The ability to pop a long ball into the centre, yet get back into your own penalty area quickly when the pressure is on, as well as making those memorable heroic runs down the wing (corporately speaking of course) are all part of the 'spirit of the job'.
