    First off, I like to say a very special thanks to anyone who helped me out on the last job post about dealing with ticked off users.
    I start this monday on 1st line support on a 2 month rolling contract with the NHS near my area. The team is about 7/8 people supporting quite a few 100 users from what Ive been told at the interview. It feels abit taunting going in tomorrow, not sure why that is. I was more worried about my long term career with the NHS which I woundt mind. its really annoying having to wait so long to find another job.

    thanks again guys, really do appreciate it :thumbleft

    Awesome! the NHS is a very good orgainsation to work in! so many different technologies used Citrix, Novell, Windows, VMWare's etc etc etc!

    I see your from London so i'm assuming its for the NHS in London? :)

    Just a heads up - if you work your ass off like i did (was on a 1 month contract) then they will more then likely keep you on - This has been the case for me. The NHS always has projects and stuff gong on in the background. Most staff are very friendly so it may be an idea after a few weeks to see whats going on and if you could join in etc.

    got in there early and not make a bad impression. also meant another new starter. we unfortunately didnt do much apart from making some note on how to use the remote desktop programs. what he didnt tell us was, we werent meant to start accepting calls but I did take one and he was quite surprised and he told me to take it easy until a later day. this is the first time anyone told me take a lay back on the work :blink

    it was nice atmosphere, sort of :biggrin he also talked about some politics and why I was there and what happen to the other staff before us. all in all, this is a great opportunity. its a shame it be for short while, as there is no back door to get in from the manager told us. and all the slots from the perms have been filled.

    thanks again guys, for your warm congrats :)
