As you may be aware, Raymond A Lamb were bought by Thermo Fisher Scientific during November 08. After worrying about whether I would be kept or not and knowing that Thermo only had one position open, I decided to put a few feelers out.
During November and early December, a number of companies spoke to me with nothing coming from it. In mid December Thermo interviewed me and followed it up with a kind offer to take on an area. I thanked them for the offer and was told that I would get the formal offer once certain details were sorted out.
About then a couple more companies enquired about me. One interviewed me the afternoon after Thermo had said the formal offer would be in the post by end of work the next day. (Roughly two weeks after the informal notification). This interview led to an job offer early the next week and it is this I have accepted.
So now I am winding down my Raymond A Lamb work load and getting it ready to hand it over. I hope that Thermo don’t have a dagger ready for me but I was offered a new challenge which is always welcomed. Knowing what area Thermo were going to offer I would probably get more money in the long term than what the new company offered, but a number of folk I spoke to said that I would be silly to turn this down.
So what have I accepted?
