Oh heck, it's starting to feel real!

Just had a call from the HR lady, she is sending the contract today for me to sign. My official start date is April 2nd.

I will be spending a couple of days at their Manchester HQ, then on to Nottingham to look at the operational side, then to Enfield to pick up my company car!

This means I will be driving from Enfield back to Devon ON MY OWN! shock

Time to practice giving myself a good kick up the bottom....... grin

You can do it! It will all seem like second nature in a few months I am sure.

Fantastic Phoenix, I didn't realise you'd got a new job (and a company car!!) Really well done, glad for you. Take it easy driving and have a couple of stops.

Congrats from all of us at GNHQ as well. We have been following this with interest (and sometimes with our angry is-this-ageism expression). Hope it's a huge success.

Anne58 Thu 21-Mar-13 16:21:40

Thank you all so much, your support and good wishes have been so very much appreciated.

janthea The job is Sales & Account Manager (Devon & Cornwall) for a company called Findel Education.

Not so much "exciting" as scary! I have to do a 3 month probationary period, but it seems that is pretty much standard now.

Well done Phoenix - drinks on you then! wine

My sister, age 53, is also starting a big new job on 2nd April, after some time in positions well below her experience and qualifications.

Anne58 Thu 21-Mar-13 17:57:42

Riverwalk I did offer champagne all round in Lil's the other night! grin

Every good wish to your sister, I'm 54 so I do know what it's like to be starting over at a certain age!

Phoenix we shall look forward to hearing all about the new job and are thrilled that an employer has,, at last, recognised your sterling qualities. grin

Anne58 Thu 21-Mar-13 19:51:47

Anne58 Thu 21-Mar-13 19:57:33
