    Default Good News!

    Well, good news for me, anyway...lol. There have been a succession of "I've got a new job" threads on here lately, which is heartening to see, so here's mine.

    I was getting a little bored with my current job, managing a unit of 35-ish IT techies (the number of bods, not their age), and feeling a little under-utilised now that I've got everything running smoothly, with no big challenges left. So, I started looking around for something bigger and better.

    The first thing that I found was what a bunch of ****wits recruitment consultants are. I deal with them day in and day out in my job, but as their Customer, and they fall over backwards for you. Now that I was applying for jobs, I found out just how lazy and illiterate they are, and how they hate reading CVs, and much prefer just to automatically upload it to their database so they can, at a later date, do a one-word search for candidates and then spam them with jobs that are totally unsuitable for them.

    Anyways, after a few weeks of getting tired of speaking to morons, finally found a motivated recruiter who gave me a first interview last week, and second interview this week, and then phoned me that same afternoon and offered me the job - which I accepted.

    What's better about it? It involves managing 60-ish staff via 4 Team Managers, so more responsibility and lots more money, and there are some points in the "major achievements" section of my CV they really like and want me to replicate in their company.

    Downsides? It's an hour's drive each way, much of it through twisty-turney, unlit A-roads, not ideal when winter is on the way. Best get some floodlights fitted to the front of my Siggy.....

    Some people might say that there are plenty of people looking for work who don't have it, including some on here, so it's a little selfish to be giving up a perfectly good job and finding another one, but by moving companies I've created a vacancy where I work, so it's all swings and roundabouts.

    Congratulations on the new job, it sounds well earned, so Good on you!

    As for recruitment insultants (no not a typo) I found the same thing, they are in the main lazy will not put someone forward for a job that they could do blind folded in the rain if there is a 0.0000001% difference from CV to job spec, so suggest one you do find a good one, Keep them!
