Thanks! I will look into that. I am also having trouble with the position announcement attachment. Something with the list admin strips it off. I just found out too that the hyperlink isn't static so that has nothing to do with the job I'm posting!

Here's another attempt at posting the file.

Hi

Have you posted this to the DSSHE (Disability Student Services in Higher Education) mailing list?
Just Google DSSHE and you should find the mailing list info at the top.
There's quite a few people subscribed, so it may be a good avenue to get new candidates.
Thanks
