So short intro, some of you will know I used to be a lecturer and technician in photography/art/media with some IT aspects to my job (supporting macs predominantly). But after 3 rounds of redundancy I got an out of the blue job offer from a mate, to go work for him, slightly better money than I'd been making in my previous roles, but it was still a trainee salary. I took it, I'd have enough of education, the college had absolutely shafted my teaching qualification by taking away all my teaching hours, I hadn't had a pay rise in 7 years, and to be frank I was just pissed off with the whole thing. So I went into this trainee role, specialising in a couple of IBM products, although my remit has really been administering linux, websphere (middleware), an ECM product, db2 (databases) and some other bits and pieces like open dj..... Now I understand these probably aren't the most in demand types of software, and I'm still certainly not a linux god...... but I've been a trainee and on a trainee salary for nearly 4 years now, and I'm certainly more proficient than a trainee...... I can build environments from scratch ready for work. So I'm starting to look around, not desperately, but I'd like to have a better idea of what salary I could be on, and what type of job roles I could be doing, whether working from home is a potential route I could go down (I'd like to do a bit of working from home and working whilst travelling). So has anyone got suggestions of what type of roles I could be looking at for my background and experience level?
