The meeting yesterday went very well. What they want to offer me is a project manager role: writing the technical spec for the project, a timeline for deliverables, estimating what resources will be needed, heading the design and development teams, etc. They want to do it on a contract basis at first, to see how we both get on with each other, which is fine for me. I do NOT want to get locked into a very negative situation as in my last job.
They’ll write up a proper job spec by the end of the week, and then I have to respond with a salary requirement. They wouldn’t give me a range that they were thinking about, so I’ll have to think hard about to approach this. Since I hope that it will turn into a permanent position, I don’t want to ask what I normally would as a contractor. Hmmmnn…I’ll have to do some research on this.
Good news, though. I feel like such a huge weight has been taken from me.
I got terribly lost on the way home. I have no sense of direction at all; if I have clear directions on how to get somewhere, I will get completely lost when I try to reverse it to get home, which is what I did last night. Consequently, I spent two hours driving through the ass end of Stoke, Hanley, Burslem, Newcastle, etc. Nightmare. I was late getting to the stable, and someone had already put Lizzie away for me.
