Being an avid reader of both the Sigs and Outside the wire forums. I feel that we should all try and help each other out when it comes to finding employment in civi stasse. I have spent the past few months searching for the right job and it is only now that I have found one. If you are going into the contract environment don't assume that the job is safe until you are actually sat in the chair. Listed below are some good companies and agencies that I have used. Alongside them are some comments that may be of assistance to certain tradegroups. Hopefully, those ex sigs that have also gone through what I have will be able to pass on some inside information to help others out. www.scom.com - Project management environment. www.harmonics.co.uk - Project Management and Training www.parity.co.uk - MOD/Government jobs (mostly telecomms) www.pendragon - mainly government in the West Country There are loads more that I have used but the above are the ones that love employing ex sigs trades.
