Poor choice among today's jobsearch - plus encouraging article

A few extracts from the descriptions found in today's jobsearch:
- You will need to have good communicative skills as you will be dealing directly with customer enquires.
- You must have Sage payroll experience and excellent communication skills. You will be wholly responsible for Sage payroll. You will obtain quotes from suppliers, order parts, chase up delivery and check items on arrival. You will be checking goods out, invoicing, undertaking customer follow up and credit control
- Applicants must be able to deal competently with face to face and telephone enquiries from professional organisations and individual members of the public.
- You will be a team player with the ability to work on your own initiative. You will be confident and possess the ability to be able to communicate at all levels. The ideal candidate must have previous experience in a Facilities Management, customer focused or a project management role and will be proficient in Microsoft office.

I'm rolling out a couple of plausible speculative applications, in the absence of any better matches I really need to get them out to keep things flowing for the jobcentre.

I was encouraged to read an article on the Jobcentre website (unfortunately can't link to it any more following a restructure of the site) where a disabled person with short term memory issues was given a chance through a Work Trial, as I've so tried to get employers to give me. There are employers who will do this, one has to be on my radar soon surely.
