Well, after recieving a response of “We’ll employ Samuel as and when needed” and that time being somewhere at the other end of next month, and probably only for a few days, I am seeking a new job. On top of the strange mistreatment, I was also sent a job advert by my current employer for a job elsewhere…needless to say, I get the hint, and I’m moving on. Unfortunately for them the people who are now left to run the network are seriously understaffed and probably don’t know half of what I know about it, but I’ve done my level best to impart my knowledge on the incumbant employees, if they don’t remember it is not my problem.
After spotting a few good jobs which I feel like applying for and tracking down some former colleagues for advice, I am quietly confident that I have everything in order.
There isn’t much more I can say without breaking confidentiality agreements (something I have no intention of doing) so I will leave it at that.
For the record, I am intending on continuing study in the middle of next year, although that is variable depending on my employment situation.
