I was looking to move into a managerial role, and applied for jobs all over the country, as I was prepared to live anywhere. To my surprise, got two offers, both from pretty well-known companies. There was very little to choose between them, but my working environment is very important to me, and this place had just been completed. The salary wasn't quite so good, but I felt that the benefits outweighed the disadvantages, so I came here.
On the whole I was happy where I was, working in a new, very well-designed building, nice colleagues, and the company provided plenty of training. But I was stuck behind a desk all day. Then I saw the ad for my present job -similar field of work, just a different way of doing it - and decided to apply. Now I'm on the road most of the time, meeting people, and I get to go abroad as well, which is great.
