Got my training on Thursday. Apparently I have to be trained to use a tablet. This is going to be fun...

I did my training. Putting the tablet on a stand and turning it on took 20 minutes.

They put out biscuits though so not all bad :)

As far as I know everything went OK (but then I was dealing with this in the backend / ICT side of things)

Our election didn't finish until around 6am lol

Time to give this thread a little bump. I received an email today from my local Council to enquire if I'm interested in working on next year's local Council elections on May 2nd. Now that's what I call forward planning!

I know that having dodged a bullet last year, my local authority will be taking part in the voter iD trial this year. Which on one hand will be a pain, but on the other hand, we'll be getting paid a bit more for.

No mention of the impending General Election/People's vote though...lol!

Crikey that is VERY forward planning for local government!

My local council have also asked for my availability. Too busy now to take a day off to Poll Clerk but I've signed up for counting.

When does this start happening? I can't seem to find any adverts online and is it county council or Borough councils that will be advertising?

Thanks!

Think I'll give this a go this year, though there's currently nothing online about jobs in North Tyneside - any ideas when/where I should look?

Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
So as a newbie here I'm still trying to get my head round it all & which is the way to channel my time. I've signed up to Prolific & Resondent thanks to @Jon
I've earned a few 3.00 on Prolific so far & waiting on surveys to come back from Respondent that I've applied for, so fingers crossed.
I have a few items listed on Ebay which I hope I will put to my 1st try at MB, scares me to be honest.
