Looking for new media people

We’re looking for additions to the New Media team at the Health Promotion Board. These are our [general benefits](http://www.hpb.gov.sg/hpb/default.asp?pg_id=967).
Specifically for the New Media team: We were the first in the Singapore Government to [launch a podcast](http://www.hpb.gov.sg/hpb/default.asp?pg_id=2039) and one of the first to [launch a blog](http://www.hpb.gov.sg/hpb/default.asp?pg_id=2889). For mobile technologies, we’ve launched [MMS ecards](http://www.hpb.gov.sg/web/heartrockz/), a [voting platform via SMS](http://www.hpb.gov.sg/hpb/default.asp?pg_id=2209) and a [mobile diet tracker](http://www.hpb.gov.sg/diettracker/). We now produce health-related [videos on YouTube](http://www.youtube.com/user/HPBsg) (skipping the traditional TVC route) and also promote some of our campaigns using Facebook. There should be more to come.
The [JobsDB ](http://sg.dimension.jobsdb.com/career/Default.asp?PID=3&AC=HPB&EC=01&GC=&JobID=236&LID=Null&SGB183082216978073) listing has more details on our requirements. This is for a full-time post, closing date 25 March 2008. We’re also looking for a couple of part-time employees, doing a similar role.
For the full-time position you can submit your application directly via JobsDB, but still it’s good to drop a note to let me know, so we can look out for it. You can [contact me](http://vantan.org/about/contact.php).
Also, do spread the word if you know of any friends who may be a good fit for the work we do.
[ I’m so happy I’m officially allowed to blog about this 🙂 ]

    Who says we don’t hire smokers? 😛 Our requirements are not cast in stone but I can expect you to feel lots of, erm, peer pressure to adopt more healthy habits. Haha…
    Thanks for the compliments but I seriously would like to reach Web 2.0 status, man… it requires a lot of effort to upkeep though! Which is why we’re hiring!
