So, I have just put the phone down on the second call today from an Irish recruitment agency. I am definitely hot stuff right now ! Reg and I being both redundant shortly (today is my last day, he ends his contract next week) we have been casting a few lines towards Ireland, ever since Reg got called out of the blue for a job there. He turned it down at the time, as he was starting a great new job, but then they decided to outsource the whole thing to Morocco, and his contract didn't turn permanent. I have started looking seriously for the last fortnight or so, and so far, I have heard from a few recruitment agencies, they are all agreeing that I should be looking for a job that pays at the very least 45K€ plus package) and that I shouldn't have too much trouble finding one. :shock: Really ? Me ? You mean... I've got skills ? :redface: Gulp. They are, to quote one of the charming young men who called me, "all jumping on me like ants on candy". I'm not used to being candy. So... it means changing countries, going to a country that I have actually never been to before, although it has been on my wish-list for a long time, and I have friends who have had successful experiences there and really loved it. I like the thought of Ireland, it has always appealed to me, but thinking of leaving my family and especially my friends behind feels... weird. The moving also will be a bit of a mess to sort out, but we have researched that a bit, it could work out ok... So... I'm thinking. Any opinions, advice, thoughts and even silliness is welcome.
