Job Adverts - They Want What?

As I've now lost my job (finish on Friday), I've started to look for a new one and I'm surprised at the lack of spelling and grammar checking on job adverts, for example:

The really sad thing about this job advert is that it has been submitted by an Agency. One would think that they would, at least, run a spell checker across it before submitting.

No, I'm not going to apply for this position. There are a couple of "Business Analyst" jobs that I will be applying for though.

Another interesting thing I have noticed is that there are 8495 jobs currently advertised in Perth (on - listed within the last month), of which 556 state "immediate start". I've also noticed that other jobs which don't actually state "immediate start" are for commencement in the short term. It seems that there is an expectation that there are a number of people sitting around waiting for a job. These jobs seem to be across all industries and qualification/experience levels.
