P.S.
It would be highly appreciated if any agency inteding to respond to this advert. includes me in the project because I have earned more then 5 years experience translating/interptreting for United Nations - International Police Task Force (English into Bosnian/Serbian/Croatian and vice versa). I am willing to provide references and other important paperwork.

It is a tender for a contract Feb 27, 2004

It is not a job, it is a tender for a contract in the public sector, and it is not for freelancers but for agencies (£25 is a very modest sum for any business).

I'm no expert in that field, but I'm inclined to believe that it is normal practice for these procedures and, of course, perfecly legal, or the Police force would not use it...

Thanks for the explanation Feb 27, 2004

I didn't realise this was normal practice in Britain when tendering as a company.
