Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Have posted this on AllCallSigns as well.

    Hi,
    I am desiring to leave my current employer.
    I am looking for work which is in the IT Installation industry, i have a background in installation of network infrastructures and electrical wiring, and for the past 18 months i have been working in the petroleum industry (on the retail side).

    I would like to be employed in a Junior Management role, as my current tasks are to manage stock and staff below my position.

    I am a very outgoing and motivated individual, who is well suited to working effectively as a member of a team.

    I am currently based in the North East of England, but possibly willing to relocate.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details, (By private message)

    CV and referees availible on request.

    Regards,
    SparkySteve

    Sounds just like me! I've been looking on Jobserve.com, they seem to have quite a few positions available in the Midlands, I'm sure you can pick your location. I know it's another website to look on but always worth a look.
     
  3. Cow,

    Thanks, will have a look.

  4. and for the past 18 months i have been working in the petroleum industry (on the retail side).

  6. Not a wah, i hope.
    No, i have been employed by a company that specialises in wet stock analysis, and i have been the Installation Supervisor in charge of organizing and managing the other installers, and undertaking the complicated installations of our equipment, which essentially talks to other peices of existing kit on site and threads the data received together to allow us to monitor losses, leaks ect.

    But have recently become aware that although we have a very, very good product to sell to the industry, we are being mis-managed on a higher level. Other people have seen this, have commented and left regarding it. Im now in a similar position and want to jump ship.

    msr, Monster.co.uk is the biggest pile of cack i have ever seen, but thanks for the other links.

    Regards,
    SparkySteve
     
  7. Please educate me... has anyone actually found a job through the above sites ??Ive never found them any good at all ? Just loads of obscure jobs sent via email and by the time you get them the jobs are filled. Junk email if you ask me !!

    Anyway I digress, have you tried the offshore sparkie in the North Sea or somewhere more exotic like singapore etc Try looking up rigzone.com. Market is good at the mo so its worth updating your CV
     
  8. Whatever thoe outcome, good luck mate. There's not a lot worse than a job you don't enjoy and spend most of your life at, except perhaps a marriage in the same category.
     

  9. Don't take offence mate, but you may just wish to re-write that ad. Some of it makes you sound as if you are an immigrant.
     
  10. Please elaborate?

    Yes, the last three jobs I have held.

  12. Have a look at the 'bold'. As an example 'I am desiring to leave my current employer' isn't the best use of English is it?

    What about trying something along the lines of 'Whatever specialist, currently employed in a middle management position, seeks career advancement.

    I'm not saying that my suggestion is the best way to sell yourself, but you appear to be selling yourself short.

    Please don't take offence here, as that is certainly not the intention.
     
  13. this is why i asked if you worked in a garage
    petrolium industry (on the retail side) sounds like CV talk for petrol pump attendant your longer explanation leans more towards your networking skills
     
  14. recommend you look at the job sites provided by MSR, search some of the jobs that are on offer, review your CV and tailor make it to suite the general positions that are open.

    Maybe you should have a couple of CV,s one as focused on your management skills, and the other focused on your technical skills. some employers want one or the other its rare they want both.
