A Good Job, Well Done

Back in January, I registered with an employment agency, and the charming consultant who interviewed me asked me what my ideal job was.
I described the job that I have now been doing for the last seven months, and she didn’t just find it for me, she created it, by telling her Director about me and my unusual penchant for ISO 9001.
By mid-August, the company was fully accredited, but there were still lots of things for me to do, so my contract was extended to the end of October, and now it’s finally up and I have to leave.
Frankly, they’ll have to drag me out of here kicking and screaming, this afternoon, because I’ve had the most fantastic time. There have been frustrating moments and some of it has been hard work, but I have really, really enjoyed both the work and the company. I realise how lucky I am to have been doing my ideal job with such fun, friendly and intelligent people, for these last few months. I am gutted to be leaving.

  1. Unusual? UNUSUAL!! I’ll say. I had the good fortune to be present at three companies over here during the processes involved in their preparing for accreditation.
    The language, my dear. You should have heard the language.

  2. Does that mean you’ll be available for bar-work of a Friday again?
    We was gaspin’ last week.

  3. It’s hard to say, at present. I certainly won’t be serving this afternoon, but you’re welcome to help yourselves.
