Resilient is an odd choice of word in that context. Makes me think that the job is shit and they want someone that will put up with it.
Resilience is something companies like for example: Rolls Royce Plc (Not the Automotive RR at all) seem to use in a stress related / mental health way.
I think it may be that I described why I left Garrett (Honeywell engine boosting in 2000). Having spent 12 months, working on a new semi-automated assembly line for a new product line - Commercial Diesel Variable Nozzle Turbos, which had an robot cell and 5 semi automated/manual stations, and cost £500K, I was told by my boss that the whole project had been planned to go to New Mexico all along, but he felt he couldn't trust me to actually share that information. I took this as a personal insult (which it fucking was) and within 3 weeks had a job offer elsewhere.
Perhaps I will learn not to be too honest at my next interview.
This next bit is all a bit long winded so sorry in advance.
Now a few weeks ago I spoke to a recruitment guy who is like the gate keeper for Rolls Royce (they have a sole contract for interim staff and I've worked via them for 3.5 years between 2010 and 2014) about a contract he'd advertised at Barnoldswick, which is almost commutable from L37, and he told me that it had all gone dead, Then he was trying to get me to put my name forward for a contract that involves lots of travel across the UK, but I know there are 2 roles, and I want the one that pays £125 more a day.
The other one, they seem not to be able to fill. Strange that.
Must be that the rate is shite, but hey wait a while and they'll be 2000 people from BAE System only too ready to do it, for free.
Then I know he asked 2 other people about a job in New Clear on the other side of the site from where I am, before he asked me if I'd be interested. Only £2 an hour less than I'm on. Last week I said yes, because I thought "better to get a 5 day a week 12 month contract in Derby, than be doing 3 days a week in Derby with a contract that ends at Christmas"
An interview was arranged for Today and I was able to email the hiring manager, that there was no need for me to go to reception as my swipe card works his building.
Anyway, I had second thoughts. I thought I'd rather work 3 days a week until Christmas and then take my chances for the new year.
He sent me a really nice email back saying I was to contact him direct if I ever changed my mind as they always need people.
Almost within 10 mins of that, I got an email from an RC asking me to phone him. I'd spoken to this guy about a job in Barrow in Furness, but we'd both agreed it wasn't for me. I don't have those skills, and Barrow is too far - Unless I was without any work in which case nowhere is too far.
Seems, that he'd "given a sample of CV's" to a company near Burnley (50 miles from my house - 45 miles on the motorway network), just after talking to me before, and it took them 4 weeks to respond, but now they'd like to meet me. I told him what I'd need as an hourly rate, and within an hour he had a meeting arranged for me with them on Friday.
Strange world, this life of contracting.
