Section Two.

Questions 18 to 22.

You will hear another five recordings.

For each recording, decide what the speaker is doing.

Write one letter (A-H) next to the number of the recording.

Do not use any letter more than once.

After you have listened once, replay the recordings.

You have fifteen seconds to read the list A-H.

[pause]

Now listen, and decide what each speaker is doing.

[pause]

Eighteen

Woman: My feeling is that we should leave aside VSB's offer. It's obviously very competitive - way below the others. But how do we know they'd complete the project on time and to the required standard? They're a small company. Would they have the skilled labour or equipment? We could request references from former customers, I suppose. That'd mean putting off the decision and personally I have very little confidence in recommendations - they're easily 'manufactured'. Let's look at the other companies.

[pause]

Nineteen

Man: You've been in this department for three months, John, and I'm very pleased with your work. You've obviously mastered the regular things - paperwork, customer enquiries etcetera, and you've made some excellent proposals for improvements. I think it's time to see how you manage more challenging work. How would you feel about taking on my responsibility for the finance committee? It'd mean taking minutes and liaising with the chair. You'd find it interesting and I could concentrate on the end-of-year report.

[pause]

Twenty

Woman: From the figures, it's clear that our Canadian outlets are below target - approximately twenty per cent below for the third quarter, if the finance report is right. Now what should we do about it? Cut our losses and close the outlets? That's the MD's view. I think it's too early to do that. We've invested heavily in Canada and we don't want to lose that investment. Let's send someone over to try to turn the position round and then make a judgment in December.

[pause]

Twenty-one

Man: You've been a reliable supplier for years and we're very grateful. Would you be interested in a different form of collaboration now? We're putting on an exhibition of office equipment in the convention centre and we're looking for companies to help us meet some of the costs, such as producing a catalogue. There'd be some useful publicity for you and free tickets and hospitality for your guests. Think about it. We don't need an instant decision. Discuss it with your director.

[pause]

Twenty-two

Woman: Thanks for getting back to me so quickly about my request for a transfer, I'm sorry the company couldn't help, but I really do need to be in London. My husband's been offered a job there and it's too good to turn down. So I've been looking around and there's a possibility in the Publicity section at Richardsons' but they're selecting people tomorrow. I have to provide a testimonial quickly. Would you mind doing me one?

[pause]

 Now listen to the recordings again.

[pause]

 That is the end of Part Two.

[pause]
