Met with one of our competitors this afternoon to discuss a joint project for one of our customers. And at the end of the discussion he tells me they have a position in their Head office that is perfect for me...

"So we danced for a while," discussing the role and...

Stunned, still stunned. And flattered, excited and interested (I think). Totally stopped in my tracks.

Better terms and conditions? does the new job mean you don't have to do all that extra work for Q4?

Always a toughie to jump ship

Office based most of the time

Home pretty much every night

Better t & C's, more money, new challenge = they love the template/structure I've got in place with my current employer, which has been adopted globally.

52 yrs old, and thinking the whipper snappers were starting to pass me by and BANG! I still have something to offer in the job market.
