For this job listing, I think they have the wrong title. Sounds like a "secretary" job to me.Or maybe another job combined with the secretary job (they do that a lot now days with downsizing). Or maybe the secretary and business analyst ran off together so in order for that not to happen again, they combined the job...

-------------- There's no pay scale that I can see.
A lot of the managers in my department have notebooks, nice ones.
I asked one manager why he didn't take his iPad into the meeting, he said so others wouldn't think he was just playing games on it (maybe someone made a joke during the meeting--occasionally he moved things around or looked up things). So he just took a notebook into the meeting.
Of course if you're writing shorthand, you can write anything you want and no one will know (unless they take a pic and post it asking what it says on some website).
Jobs requiring balance or someone not addicted to social media or playing games. Learning shorthand is an additional hobby you have pursued. It shows that you can do more then stare at a phone screen, even if it does have the shorthand manual on it.
Just checking out jobs on indeed.com (was searching for something else and typed in shorthand).

How about a job where you're following someone and in a vehicle? I know the police get jokes about being on their laptops while driving (if your state or country has that). But maybe a Private Investigator would rather carry around a light notebook as opposed to a laptop.
I'm reading a novel and the ladies ex was a P.I.
Also in that book the lady is on a CRUISE SHIP where she works and doesn't carry a laptop. So far not a notebook either, but if there is some place you can't use a laptop like that, this might work. Especially little notes.
WATER BASED EMPLOYMENT
Any job that requires you to be near water. Even the "water-resistant" phones aren't perfect in this situations. Mine wouldn't charge when the port got a bit wet. I had to wait for it to dry.
