I've been trying for ages to get away from the scumsucking bottom feeding corporate hellhole whorehouse that is my current job, and after a recent fracas involving my boss I decided I'd had enough, so I started applying for jobs via the net about 6 weeks ago. I was expecting to put in a good 6 months to a year jobhunting as I was looking for a pretty specific type of role, but I found out this week I've got the second job I applied for! I'm soooooooo HAPPY! Its pretty much my ideal job, its a really friendly and sociable team, offers lots of opportunities for picking up new skills in my field, and its on a National Government project for the ODPM so its going to look fab on my CV. They tried to stiff me on the contract initially but I went back and gave them my terms as a contractor and they agreed, so I've also doubled my salary ! Its based in Brighton (funky seaside town non Englanders) so I will be relocating which is going to be complicated but I think it will be worthwhile, and I have mates there so it won't be totally alien.

I just have to set up through an umbrella company and then I should get the formal offer (have already verbally accepted). After I get that I can resign! I cannot wait!

I am SOOOOO EXCITED and I just wanted to share!!! :D :D :D :D :D

Commercial Officer, so its a bit legal and a bit purchasing and supply. This particular job is setting up a contract for fire and rescue services that will be gradually transitioned over to the Civil Service, so it has a project aspect to it as well which fits well with my background. I want to start the CIPS postgrad diploma this year as I can command a higher fee then and hopefully get established as a contractor. As my Auntie said its a great start to my thirties! I'm just a little bit terrified that I will bomb hideously, but I guess its natural to have fears.

Thankfully no one, but I wouldn't kick the guy from the ODPM out of bed for eating crisps.
