Would love to apply for this job :)

Based on the popular and critically acclaimed novels by Kate Atkinson, this mini-series was shot on location in Edinburgh and was quickly followed by a second season.

Fancy being Jason Isaacs' PA? Production office experience? Edinburgh based? Driver? Generally awesome? My pal wants to hear from you...

Darn - it's not the Edinburgh based that would hang me up - No one would want to have me drive in the UK. Poor JI would die of fright.

WOW. While I can drive, am organized, and am considered generally awesome by my friends and family- the commute would be a killer! So...I'm going to have to pass-unfortunately. *damn it!*

Hmmm...I do wonder though about Ms. @usherette's common sense. Sending a plea out on twitter for a PA for someone who has had a history with stalkers? This does not seem like the best way to go about it. Oi vey... :roll:

I thought the BBC/production company would have a list of people they have either working for them or have a list of people they hire for this purpose. or if Jason has a preference of someone that has worked with him before (if available). I agree that twitter is not the best way...

Well, she isn't the one who have to find one, her friend is. And her friend hasn't been searching for PAs on twitter - that wouldn't be professional. I think it's probably a way of saying that she has a friend working for the production...

The job doesn't sound too bad...
