  1. 1. Design your own planet!<br />
  2. 2. The Magratheans are a funny bunch – they rarely employ new designers and so when they do, you can be sure that they receive a LOT of job applications!<br />
  3. 3. Wanted: Planet Designer<br />We are looking for a single highly skilled individual to join our team of galactic planetary designers.<br />You will be expected to produce innovative and durable stellar bodies for a range of discerning and ridiculously wealthy clients.<br />The pay is equally ridiculous – must be a people person and be willing to get your hands dirty. Vogons need not apply!<br />

Is it a refuge from their own polluted and war torn planet? A second holiday home? Or is it a money making investment?<br />
