Hey thanks everyone. I just spoke to him and it is decision time for him.
He has been offered the job but they want him to do it unpaid for a while and no mention of what a while actually means. He is going to talk to them again on Monday to try and get more precise info.
I told him he needs to pin them down and see a contract. The other part of the job will involve a lot of touring early next year, two weeks a month away from Wellington and he knows that will affect the work he does as a d&b dj plus the radio work he is doing. He worries whether the night clubs will hold the existing posts open and ditto the radio show while he is away.
He said he is prepared to do dish washing and kitchen work so he can persue his main opportunities but also knows that this SE job would give him experience.
Main thing is he needs to be paid for what he does.
I'll keep you all up to date. Again many thanks for the warm messages to him I am passing them on.
