Hi James,
    I'd say by far the biggest problem you'd face is that we're after 
someone full-time during normal business hours, so if you're still at 
uni that would probably be an issue (my apologies - on reading my 
original posting, that probably wasn't clear).

As far as the rest of your question, though, let's just say that in my 
experience (generally, not specifically with this company), when a job 
ad says "requirements", you should pretty much always read it as "wish 
list" :)  And if you're in the market for job, it's always good to have 
an up to date resume anyway.

I don't make the hiring decisions, and obviously am in no position to 
promise anything, but really, if you're interested in a job, the worst 
that can happen if you apply is they say "no", and you've lost nothing 
but an hour or so preparing a resume (which will no doubt be of use to 
you later anyway).
