OK..I actually work for a well known mobile phone company and looking at the posts from another member and the language used, it is more than likely the same one as him! A clue? Well, it ain't phones4u!

My occupation within this organisation is Head of Sales for three of their online brands (therefore totally seperate from the retail side) and I basically manage a large(ish) sales team and make sure we make money.

Which isn't always easy.....

Which means I'm also supposed to know what I'm on about......

But it does pay the bills!


....and yes, before anyone asks, there may be an opportunity to do some deal for the forum members individually!

Phew...that was lucky!

In these tough times, my employer (remember, a famous mobile phone company) has decided to make my job (and a few others) redundant! Instead of a separate Head of Sales (my current/old job) and a Head of Customer Service, it was decided that they could save some cash and create a new position called Head of Contact Centre which means a whole lot more responsibility and not a lot more cash.

However, it's still a good career move and I'm glad to say that I've excelled in the selction process and got the job! RESULT!

That means I can keep the M6 nicely fed and a roof over mine and the girlfriends head (and in that order too...priorities you see!).

So, I've just escaped a brush with the credit crunch...for now!

No prob's guys...just go onto www.e2save.com and pick what you want (seriously, there's tens of thousands of deals to choose from so I'm not going to even attempt to explain anymore on here).

Let me know what you want and I'll do you a deal at cost so it will be better than what you see online....simply PM me with your request and contact details.

Remember - I can't do miracles so if you're mid-contract I cannot get you out of that! Oh...and despite who I work for, I cannot get hold of any deals on the iphone!

But if/when you're ready to get a new phone/contract on practically anything else then for God sake don't go into a shop...speak to me first!

OR

You are a Dr specialising in the Intestinal tract..

May as well join in! I'm a Chartered Civil Engineer, I work in the coastal sector for a main contractor as a site agent. It has its moments but generally is interesting.

I run my own little tiny company providing Testing and Commissioning services to the National Grid, specifically on the High Voltage Electricity Transmission Network.

Got a few lads who work with me, great money for outdoor work as no one professional wants to move more than 3 feet from a laptop in a cosy office these days.

Up to 400,000 volts. But anything less than 132,000 volts is for girls. ;-)

Well my turn... Ex-IT Contractor turned honest. I'm a Messaging Consultant for a large insurance company at the moment, however before joining that job in Jan this year, I managed one of the largest email messaging deployments in Scotland for a public sector client.

I might take you up on your offer; I'm due an upgrade and just sold my previous handset for about the same as my last 12 bills on Ebay.

Could even pick up the phone in person, I literally live 2 mins from where you work and pass every day!

Not sure if I've seen an M6 there mind; I'll have to keep my eyes peeled
