Thread: new job

  1. #1

    Smile new job

    Hi All,

    Those of you that know me will probably know that in June last year I was told I would be made redundant effective June 2012 (along with a great number of my friends and collegues). As you can imagine this was a bit of a blow as I have a fantastic job that is 7 mins walk from my front door, great salary and 45 hrs a week. Since I was told I have been through a shed load of different emotions.
    My wife and I have 2 young children and It's a sickening feeling when you start to look at the jobs that are out there and realise that you might be spending 3 hours a day in the car just travelling to and from work and earning less for the privilage.
    out of the blue, I recieved an email from a company wanting to talk to me regarding my going to work for them. We met early last week and following a 2 hour interview and some physchometric tests they offered me the job then and there.
    I will have to start driving to work but it's only 1/2 hour away and the money is comparable with what I'm on now.
    The job means some changes to my lifestyle (getting up at 5 to walk the dog is going to be a shocker in the winter) I have had to tell the lads in the Pheasant syndicate that i'm dropping out because i will be working a lot of Saturdays and it's just not fair on the Wife if i'm out feeding birds every night after work.
    I promised myself a stalking trip as a reward when I got a new Job and I have wangled 2 weeks off in between finishing one job and starting the next but I can't decide what to do (any ideas for a day or a couple of days away?)

    We are all of to Centre Parcs in the morning as it happens. I booked it before I got the job as I wanted to make sure the kids had a holiday in case I was out of work.
