Job Description

THIS JOB REQUIRES AN AUTHENTIC FRENCH-BRITISH ACCENT (MUST NOT SOUND AMERICAN)

Recordings will be used as part of an exercise in which project teams from a fictitious company called "OilCo" are negotiating an environmental permit.

Participants must deal with various "issues" in the form of voicemail messages, etc., which is where you come in.

Script is as follows:

(Leaving a voicemail message...read should sound natural, not scripted):


"This Dennis Beauchamp. Listen, we’ve got a few problems down here at Port City that I wanted to let you know about. Nothing to worry about, but I thought you should know. I’m at the refinery site and you can probably hear the picketers out here. They’re from the IWC and they are making a lot of noise. But that’s not the problem. We can handle them. The problem is about the pipe for the gas line – the custom pipe from Malaga Construction Co. in Spain. It’s at customs, but it is stuck there. The customs officer has found a discrepancy between the shipping documents and the pipe. If he was a Christian Democrat, we could deal with this without involving you. But he’s not. Claims that apparently one of the serial numbers on the paperwork is wrong. So he says we will need to pay a processing fee to 'reprocess' the shipment...you get the idea. And he’s talking about a lot of money. I don’t want to say any more on the answering machine. But for a payment of this size I need to get your OK. Give me a call."

(Second voicemail message):

"Guys, I guess you heard. Christian Democrats are out, and Socialists are in. You probably know what that means for business. For the West Land Oil Company. For PNOC and OilCo. For the project. It’s bad…really bad…(sigh)…oh, and they are probably going to want to change the project. And not for the better. I don’t envy you right now. I am leaving the company. I don’t know who you’ll be dealing with. I guess they’ll contact you when the new guy--new person--is in place. Anyway, cheers fellas."
