New Job

I’d like to give a big shout out to ’ma Kirsty’ who started her new job, working here as a Finance Officer, yesterday. Everything seems to have gone well and I’m very proud of her.

I think it’s definitely a step in the right direction as she’s ceertainly got a flare for all things organised and financial and by all accounts (hehe geddit?) it’s a company who seems to treat their employees well. For example (try to see if you can detect my seething jealousy) she gets 31 (count ’em 31) days holiday each year and works ‘flexi-time’ which, although I’ve never experienced it I’m assured by all those who have, provides ample oppertunity to acculmulate even more days off than that. Over and above the training they’re going to provide as part of the job they also provide a small amount for each employee to ‘do some not-job-related training or activity’ and they give female employees 12 months maternity leave with extra cash for childcare when they return.

She seems to be particularly excited about this last point. I can’t imagine why ;o)
