“If everything is temporary, I will bear the unbearable, terrible triteness of being” – Gang of Youths
Yes, everything is temporary, and in my case, that temporary contract turned into a 20 year career with BT. I started back in May 2000 on a six month contract and somehow, in December 2020 I found myself still at BT. However it is with mixed emotions that I am hanging up my pass card in less than 3 weeks time and leaving the company I have grown up with.
I have made many friends along the way, and have some great memories from those 20 years. I know I will be keeping in touch with lots and lots of people. It’s going to be an emotional few weeks!
Having said that, now feels like the right time for me to move on and look for a new challenge. So from January 2021 I will be actively looking for something new to give my braincells a good workout. My background is predominantly Project and Programme Management but I am willing to keep my options open and consider something different. The last 18 months spent in Network Operations have proven that anything is possible and something completely outside of my comfort zone can be a success and fun at the same time.
Thanks for everything BT, it’s been a blast!
