Classified advertisements

Classified advertisements advertise jobs, accommodation, services, the sale of products etc. Depending on the city and type of media, short-hand terms are often used. This is due to the limited space available and helps reduce the cost of placing an advert.

Can you make out the short-hand terms in this ad for vacancies?
