re: Whats your occupation?

Did you get interviewed by Ashley Praile at Sellafield PP? I used to work for them, not the best outfit to work for.

Self employed is the way forward, money is a lot better and the tax "ooportunities" are good too.

PinkPonce Posted on 20/11 17:24
re: Whats your occupation?

Yeah. I didn't actually meet up with him though. Well he was called Ashley but cant remember his surname.

I had a couple of telephone interviews, but TandT and EC Harris are the cost people BAA use here so i had worked closely with a couple of there people. One gave me a great character reference and they offered me the fix on the strength of that...

It just didn't seem right at the time. Plus I wanna get things finished and final accounted here for my own professional satisfaction!

AND i didn't fancy the drive to and from every week. flying to and from heathrow so its ideal for me here.

Electricman Posted on 20/11 17:34
re: Whats your occupation?

Pink ponce do you know where to get cheap flights as i am driving down here every week (Reading) managed to get a couple of £38 flights from BMI website but there few and far between. its only £20 return to reading on the rail air bus

Not self employed i want to get this project im on under my belt then in 2 years may be.

PinkPonce Posted on 20/11 17:39
re: Whats your occupation?

Electricman.

Not really from Teesside mate. I am fortunate that the company pay my flights, but they can be anything from 180 to 390 a week. Really expensive.

Mine are expensive because I am on the first flight on a monday morning 8:00am, and the 16:15 on the friday afternoon. Full of commuters so they get booked up well in advance.

Best way to do it is if you can book WELL in advance and if you are flexible with the dates and times you travel.

Failing that, newcastle to heathrow with BA isn't half as bad - but again you need to book fairly in advance, or they also fly to London city, but you are talking 1.5 hours to get to heathrow from there, and then the rail air to reading!

Im almost at 200,000 air miles actually now... Also, got some works in the terminals at heathrow so don't know when i'll be coming to an end. T5 doesnt finish til march, and then there's the final accounting.

Unless obviously you wanna offer me a day rate to go to Egypt as well haha!
