Here are some recommendations from former employees of ours:

   - Ben Taub, former staff writer

"From Science to kittens, the fun never stops".
   - Phil Sinyavsky, former head of ad operations

"Cookies appear a lot. And doughnuts. And sometimes puppies. Also, there's a poltergeist in our lift"
   - Dr Robin Andrews, former staff writer.

"Our lunch time crossword sessions are really exciting"
   - Jonny O'Callaghan, former senior staff writer.

Why you should work for IFLS, according to current employees:

"Our receptionist is a dinosaur, our cocktails come with dry ice, and Obi Wan Kenobi lives in our board room"
   - Katy Evans, copy-editor
