LONDON (Reuters Life!) - Want a job in marketing? Sell yourself in a 160 character text message and cut the waffle.

British mobile phone content provider Teimlo is looking for a new marketer but is only taking job applications by text message - and will only text back candidates who make the shortlist.

"We're hiring by text," says an announcement on the website of the Wales-based company which wants to find candidates who can work well by mobile.

"If you are qualified, sassy, good with words, dynamite at events, Adobe compatible, having working knowledge of mobile and social mobile, and are a determined multi-tasker and networker we want to hear from you."

Candidates who make the shortlist will be asked to send in their full CVs and make then be invited to a face-to-face interview. Only Britain-based candidates can apply.
