    not-bono-ever Not what they want but what is good for them

    you could put whatever you wanted in the agreement - suppliers/ partners / upstream /downstream - whatever, but its not seen as the done thing in either national or local Government to do this. I know someone who went from civil servant drone involved in bandwidth autions to head of liaison at a bandwidth auction winner within a month of the end of the actions. on 200K PA. sickening proto corruption

    I got redundancy :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    I also said i don't see the point in working out any notice till the end of the month as the relationship with them is so poor after how they have treated me and they agreed. So I've got 2 weeks off till my new job starts :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    So a new job, 2 weeks off and £15K, you haven't even really wasted the money you spent on your suit since there will be other times you can wear it. Strikes me you've come out ahead in the end, very pleased for you.

    Pretty much sums it up yes!!

    I left in no doubt that a large part of the stress I've felt there over the recent past is down to bullying by the 2 managers involved today. They had been claiming a 'new regime' since a new provider last year but in the final analysis it was same old same old and I kept calling them out on it.. I hadn't had line management since October and when I called my manager shit last week.. They tell me today I spoke out of line!!! I was having to chase up about an absence review after hitting a trigger point!!! And the team leader that will stay and go for the job... A micro managing bully, which i raised over and over again and they ignore.

    But let us remember, there are clients' lives in the hands of these people. Recovery workers who are bullied and intimidated by spreadsheets and file audits ( Ive never done a file audit on a staff member), workers that have no capacity to contain or help complex probelms because they feel so shit about themselves, and managers that have only have one way to manage. On a performance spectrum that is unachievable and arbitary. Made up time frames for pieces of work and naming and shaming when not done.

    People die because these services fail them, people fail to recover or make any sustainable change and it's not for the want of a few people still trying

    So glad to be out of there and on terms that work in my favour.

    Only half joking, what's the secret to getting a new job so fast? You are like the Obi Wan of jobs and I want a piece of it.

    Well played Mumbles274. Really pleased for you, mate. I hope your next set of managers are more deserving of someone as obviously committed as yourself.

    I really dont know!!! I applied for a grand total of 1 job, got an interview, got the job. I'm generally pretty unassuming and suffer a lot of self doubt in general but if you allow me one dalliance with that... I'm awesome, very good at my job and know my stuff. I have been told Im very good in interviews too. I researched this one quite thoroughly, various aspects of the role, the curriculum of the training part and asked someone in the role already what kind of questions they asked... So had an answer for one specific question that would catch many people out. ( what CBT book are you reading, Im reading Depression, causes and treatmemt)

    I have people there that will give me a reference. Spoke to one of the doctors I've worked with for years, the guy that escorted me out would also do it, we get on well and he found it funny id upset them that much!

    As a little post script to this thread. I saw my first CBT clients today, my third is next week. My caseload will be 6 a week for the first term. University is full on (2 days a week) but just what I need. I treated myself to a 1 year old Fiat 500s for my longer drive to work so am not even finding the travel that hard.. I actually look forward to it!
