What is the TTNRC? From the ad :

“The Trinidad & Tobago Network Registry Centre (TTNRC) is being established with primary responsibility for the administration of the Trinidad & Tobago Country Code Top Level Domain (.tt CCTLD) Registry. The TTNRC’s funclions include the development, operation and maintenance of a National Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure, including related technologies, policies and best practices, facilitating the expansion of online communication and information exchange and ultimately creating new channels for commerce. The TTNRC will be a functional department of the National ICT Centre within the Ministry of Public Administration.

The ad then lists three positions available (links take you to the Trinidad and Tobago Government Human Resource website)  :

The deadline date for applications is given as November 17th, 2008.

The implication from the notice implies that the Government of Trinidad and Tobago via TTNRC will (or wants to) administer and run the .tt ccTLD currently run by the Trinidad and Tobago Network Information Centre (TTNIC).
