[02:31.00]I'm ringing about the job I understand you have vacant.
[02:35.34]MAN:I'd like to find out a few more details, if I may.
[02:38.40]WOMAN:Yes, of course.
[02:39.29]Can I take your name?
[02:40.35]MAN:It's Peter Chin.
[02:44.25]Well, if you want to ask about the job and then if we're both still interested, we could arrange for you to come for an interview.
[02:52.83]I'm afraid I missed the advert for the job but heard about it from a friend.
[02:57.40]WOMAN:That's no problem at all.
[02:58.88]What would you like to know?
[03:00.40]MAN:Well, urn, what sort of work is it - washing up?
[03:04.52]WOMAN:It's answering the phone.
[03:06.20]MAN:Oh right, fine.
[03:08.92]WOMAN:And not waiting at table.
[03:11.54]MAN:That'd be good.
[03:13.41]And how many nights a week would it be?
[03:16.30]WOMAN:Well, we're really only busy at the weekend.
[03:19.10]MAN:So two nights?
[03:20.74]WOMAN:Three actually, so it would work out at twelve hours a week.
[03:24.65]MAN:That'd be fine.
[03:26.90]It wouldn't interfere with my studies.
[03:27.89]WOMAN:Are you at the university?
[03:29.83]First year Physics student.
[03:32.69]MAN:Urn, and because I'm not an EU national would I need a work permit?
[03:38.10]WOMAN:Yes you would.
[03:39.31]Just get your tutor to sign it.
[03:41.60]MAN:That wouldn't be a problem, if I were to get the job.
[03:43.78]Urn, where exactly is the restaurant?
[03:47.61]WOMAN:Well, we have two branches - the one we're recruiting for is in Hillsdunne Road.
[03:53.57]MAN:I don’t know that.
[03:55.46]How do you spell it please?
[03:57.61]WOMAN:It's H-I-double L-S-D-U-double N-E Road.
[04:06.89]Is it near a bus stop?
[04:09.40] The nearest one would probably be just beside the Library.
[04:13.96]I know it.
[04:14.83]That'd be fine for me.
[04:16.18]And could I ask about the pay?
[04:18.63]WOMAN:We're offering £4.45 an hour.
[04:21.78]MAN:That's very good.
[04:23.80]My last job was £3.95 an hour.
[05:14.72]WOMAN:We feel it's pretty good and we also offer some good fringe benefits.
[05:18.82]WOMAN:Well, we give you a free dinner, so you eat well.
[05:22.70]MAN:Right, better than hostel food!
[05:24.75]WOMAN:We certainly hope so!
[05:26.36]And we also offer extra pay for working on national holidays.
[05:29.97]MAN:Oh, that's a really good perk, isn't it?
[05:32.32]WOMAN:Yes, we think so.
[05:33.60]And then because of the difficulties of getting public transport, if you're working after 11 o'clock we drive you home.
[05:39.87]MAN:Oh, that's good to know.
[05:41.54]WOMAN:Well, we'd certainly be interested in inviting you for an interview, if you're still interested?
[05:47.00]MAN:Oh yes, certainly.
[05:48.44]Could I just also ask what qualities you're looking for?
[05:52.98]WOMAN:Well, for this particular job we want a clear voice, which you obviously do have!
[06:01.69]WOMAN:And you must be able to think quickly, you know.
[06:05.51]I hope I’d ...
[06:06.82]WOMAN:So, when could you come in for an interview?
[06:08.79]We're actually quite quiet tonight?
[06:12.40]I couldn't come tonight.
[06:13.64]Or tomorrow, I’m afraid Thursday's okay –that’d be 22nd of October.
[06:19.71]WOMAN:Fine, after 5 p.m.?
[06:22.74]Would 6 o'clock be okay?
[06:26.24]And could you bring along the names of two referees?
[06:29.26]MAN:Yes, that's fine, no problem.
[06:31.79]I look forward to seeing you.
[06:33.23]MAN:Oh, by the way, who should I ask for?
[06:36.55]WOMAN:Oh yes, of course, sorry.
[06:38.30]My name is Samira Manuja.
[06:40.43]MAN:Can you spell that, please?
[06:48.10]I've got that.
[06:49.62]Thanks very much.
[06:50.70]WOMAN:Look forward to seeing you later on then ...
