I hope you don't do government contracts!Bodacious Benny wrote: ↑Mon Mar 25, 2019 4:03 pmA solid argument!
But yeah, I've got to let them know tomorrow and I think I'm going to take it. Even though my current job is now permanent tbh I'd be bored out of my brains if i was still doing it in a couple of years time. The new one is fixed terms but the projects seem more interesting and there's a strong chance it'll be extended I'd say (they're building an entire new project support team so unlikely to scrap it after 2 year....theoretically!).
I do feel a bit bad telling my current boss as she's been working behind the scenes to get this job made permanent for me.
I used to work for an outsourcing firm that took on numerous government contracts and found that every interesting government project we undertook was always scrapped within 2 years
I was offered a more senior position within an existing project but I knew that it was £100 million+ over budget and at least 3 years behind schedule so opted to leave rather than taint my career with the project from hell.
