    Default Clear 5 seats on the bench

    Wide load coming through.

    Benched as of 2nd nov. Current project coming to a close. All delivered.

    So I jobbed it

    The SAP project I was delivering to is going to hell in a handcart though.

    I keep getting dragged into meetings to give my considered opinion, and am told I am well respected by the SAP team. However this does not extend to being offered a contract extension but them.

    What I have noticed is that their senior architect is struggling like f***, and in front of an audience has been slagging me off, and behind closed doors implementing everything I have been advising.

    No more freebies from me, but it's too late I guess. Once again I'm shocked at how childish and f******* underhand people can be, and how f****** naive I can be. Makes me want to chin the chunt.

    Anyways, rant over, bring on the hoards of CUK, oh yes, and don't forget to clear those 5 spaces for me.
    Knock first as I might be balancing my chakras.

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Hire a professional, don't do it yourself. I can recommend Big Dagger Dave from Dagenham or Chop 'Em up Harry from Hounslow.

    Not a good time to be benched, you should have been looking and got a new role before now.

    I am always looking at contract end date even before I accept a role and judge if there is likely to be an extension. If I don't get extended to a good date I will look for a longer or shorter extension.

    suityou stop putting the client first, you are first, client second.

    Over two weeks to start looking, that's OK. We're not in the XMas lull just yet are we?
