You might have guessed this was in the pipeline - I’ve just accepted a contract position at the Department of Education and Children’s Services.
As a consequence, I’ve also just given my resignation from UniSA. It’s a funny day, as technically today my position transferred to ISTS out at Mawson Lakes. Being on leave at the moment though meant that this hasn’t had any relevance so far.
I’ve got mixed feelings - excited about new things, but sad about leaving colleagues and friends, and the opportunity that was lost by the less-than-optimal handling of our team through our restructure.
I’m hoping to start the new position next week, but that will depend on successfully negotiating an early departure time (compared to the standard two weeks notice).
I’ll be doing a separate post on my experiences of job-hunting (in case you are interested in the gory details)
