Hi, I am a newspaper journalist (with eight years experience) and writer, currently living and working in BA as an English teacher. I think i could be of assistance with the proofreading and am interested to learn more. I am here until Christmas and then plan to return-work permitting-in the New Year.

I'm pretty sure that if someone can't figure out the meaning of the subject, then you wouldn't want them to edit for you, but...

As the son of two journalism majors and having grown up with a father who has been working at the same newspaper for over 50 years, I am very familiar with both the media and advertising. However, I have NEVER heard of a "Job Openings" posting listed as "Situations Vacant".

I would think that "Situations Vacant" would help pre-select your applicants to those who have had a British English education and prefer "flavour" to "flavor", "theatre" to "theatre", and "lift" to "elevator". (Don't know if that's the intention.)

But "Job Openings" or "Positions Available" are immediately understandable to American writers/editors. "Situations Vacant" basically has no meaning, but "Time Out Buenos Aires" carries enough clout for this poster to click to see what was being discussed.
