Great news on the job front

Early this week, my boss told me that my services were still needed, and that they would like to look at extending my contract. I told him I was happy working with them too....but I'd like to earn a little more money. No problem, he said....negotiate with your agency........

However, I had mentioned to a close friend at work that I wouldn't mind a permanent job here. He mentioned it to my boss. (After we'd spoken). With all the recruitment agencies calling me continously during the work day, I'm sure they realised they had to move quickly, or I'd be off to another contract. Now, I'm sure I'd get something good elsewhere......what I'm scared about it I need some steady income right now, as I settle into my new house.

Yesterday, he came out of a meeting with the MD, looked at me and said....."Don't go anywhere!" Basically, he was certain that the company wanted to take me on, as permanent staff !! It's all in the hands of my agency now, they will talk to the agency about what they need to do...and I hope they let me go without too much hassle, or a ridicolous fee that will scare my company off....

And today, my boss (who I should mention, works for an outsourcing company, not the company that hopefully will employ me), and I worked out that I should ask for an annual salary of £26k. So what happens now? Well, it's all in the hands of the employment agency........I'm not sure how much they'd want to collect, and I hope it won't be too much. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, and hope it all goes well.........
