Ummm How does Belvedere in Kent (near Dartford Crossing) sound. Our Supply Chain manager handed his notice in last month and I'm not sure if we've replaced him yet. (we're also running SAP)

If you speak any languages I might be able to help. I work in multilingual recruitment. If not, I'll see if I can think of anyone else who can help out. Jealous 'bout the riding!

You have my sympathies.Im soon to have a lot more free time on my hands too.Senior management screwed us, still, i should have expected it from Zurich.At least we got warning i suppose thats something.Not much call for a Software tester in gloucestershire :( (viva zurich bank)

We should form a club. Jobless riders from BM. Um, think the title needs a bit of work!

The contracts ends at the end of March - was hoping it would pan out into a perm. job but there's hardly any work to do now - certainly not enough for two people when the person I'm replacing returns!

It almost makes me want to become a permanant student and never actually enter the 'real world'

erm, it's kinda good, as long as you don't look at your bank statements, or actually spend any money...

My best mate kinda did that. She went from school to uni, did her degree then went onto a phd, and is now working in the uni computer office.

Good for her. I'm just making the money last as long as I can, before having to get a job. Might try for a job as a lab tech in the sports science dept though, as look interesting. Deadline may have passed though :-(

The tech guy looking over my shoulder as i write this (Mis use of internet apparrently) did much the same thing and he seems OK.

I think my last post sums it up perfectly.....I'm applying for jobs in further ed colleges only, cos I'm sick of the whiny little kids already!

Di, I'll dig out a webpage for a recruitment company I just with a week before the decided they were going to stop doing science jobs and concentrate on IT.Anyone got a job for a workshy chemist?

17-02-03, 13:29
I was young and rebelling against something, not quite sure what though

Dan Grey
17-02-03, 13:30
Yes. Teaching sucks. I'm certainly best off out of it.Going to re-apply for primary school teaching. I'm more on their level!

: )Thanks Matt. I'm in the process of sending out my CV at the mo - Now I've got the mortgage, I can't afford to be out of work!

Matt - If I knew someone looking to employ a workshy chemist I'd be sending them my CV.....

Matt Savage

Do you think workshy was a good word to use in my CV?

Shergie (Art Students, Tsk, Tsk...)

Not the greatest...
