All Engines - Full Reverse!
Tis the season to be job-hunting.

So, Lancaster job closes tomorrow - form has been submitted, potential domestic issues put nicely to one side.

"Other" job is progressing - I should hear the results of a meeting today which should mean an advert asap. A local job, for a local person.

Now this morning I have something else to think about. "The-place-where-I-used-to-work" is advertising. I knew this was on the cards from conversations with people who are still-inside-but-trying-to-get-out, but I was pretty sure the job would go internally. But it's there, on the website, another job I could really enjoy. There's a lot of things in the way - the BBBHB has gone, but still did I leave under a cloud? Do I want to go back? Will I even be properly considered? Should I reverse my career (in location/breadth not money/responsibility)? Do I just want it because it's a comfortable job in the West Midlands? It's reporting to a man who did give me a management chance (good) but the Chief Exec is still the same (bad).

I've got a week to do a form if I want to. I think I shall - if for no other reason than I've got an "Any other information" that's pretty recent. Then I guess I'll see. I just hope my luck allows me to get one of these to get away from where I am now.

Ho hum.

I think you should apply. If you left under a cloud, it doesn't matter -- you just won't get it, nothing lost.

And a comfortable job in the West Midlands is a Good Thing, isn't it? Certainly better than no job at all. And probably better than getting stranded in Lancaster.

If you get it, then you can weigh up your other options and decide whether you want it or not..

Did you leave under a cloud? Or was it just issues with said person who hath now disappeared? Could you hack going back? Would the drive kill you? Are there other changes going on there that might influence your decision?

Think of it as a stepping stone, if nothing else.

Lancaster? You going to rent the house Ady used to live in just to be further away yet closer to him?

Re:

Wow - what a great idea that would be! Could someone provide me a guide to the stains he left behind?
