    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Well, that's a relief...

    As a lot of people know my contract at work is due to expire at the end of the year and I've been looking for the right role for a while now, knowing I had plenty of time to find something I really wanted. Well yesterday I was offered and have verbally accepted a new role I'm actually really excited about.

    It's back in the IT world supporting internal infrastructure as well as doing software support so covering off most of my main skill sets in one hit and something I'm really interested in, for a small but rapidly growing company that seems to be really going places. Going to be a big learning curve on some of the software but I'm looking forward to the challenge.

    I've had to take a fair chunk of a pay cut for the role compared to what I earn now, which I've only done because the job interests me so much, so Amy and I will probably be on the move again at some point in the next couple of months or so (but only about 11 miles down the road) to keep travelling expenses to a bare minimum (bonus of this is the mileage going on my car will come down again) but really quite excited about this and looking forward to it.

    Was beginning to think the right job for me wasn't out there and I'd have to "make do" with anything I could find, but this has come along at the right time, in the right place and for almost the right money so chuffed bunny and a weight of my mind.

    Congratulations mate, must be a great weight off your shoulders. Unfortunately my employer has just announced some redundancies. I am in a unique role which may help my cause but it's all very uncertain at the minute. i think everyone is facing tough times at the minute!

    Permanent, I didn't want contracting again. Never done it before this role I'm in at the moment and wouldn't do it again unless I had no choice I don't think. It suits some people and there can be more money in it, but I'm more interested in a steady career and being settled at home.
