  • What an Opportunity of a Lifetime

    Well on the back of recent survey work i have done for various firms and building a name for myself with in the world of engineering locally i have been offered a position among a design team with in our glasgow office who will be responsible for upgrading St Helena's full water infasturcture (if we win the tender)...

    I will be posted out there for four weeks then home for a period and then back out there for 6 weeks...

    I have to fly from the UK to cape town in south africa and then take a 5 day boat trip approx 2000miles to the small island of St Helena!

    Then the fun begins! Ive heard they still run around in MK1 & MK2 escorts and its a haven for classic cars that are still in A1 condition! Fingers cross a MK2 escort for a company car whilst im there!

    Heres a link to there site

    http://www.sthelenatourism.com/

    Worth checking out on the old google to give the full picture

    I cant believe my luck and only been in the business for 6 years and 3 years of that was in college so the big step in my life 6 years ago has been well worth it as these sort of oppertunities would never have come my way if i didnt take the leap!

    Just thought id let you lot know

    Bing maps cant even calculate the route :thumbs:
