					Special Employment Edition, June 2009



The I-Opener team received advertisements for five available positions
within the blindness sector - only after compiling the latest I-Opener
edition. The application deadlines for these positions fall before the
next I-Opener is due to be circulated, which means that we would not be
able to include the advertisements in our next issue. However we are
all aware that jobs are hard to come by these days and we did not want
our regular readers to miss out, which is why we decided to publish
this once-off Special Employment Edition. Happy job-hunting!
