As I said I moved south as The company that I worked for in N/ cle. was planning to move to Killinghall. I did not want to go there for the reasons that I gave.
Just by chance another chap ( a Hebburn lad) in the office had spotted an advert “in the paper I think”. We both got a job with this company and then lived 5 doors away from each other for 10 years or so.
We both worked in the same design office for 2 or 3 years then were split off into separate parts of the company. He went to works management, I went into contracts. After that I think it was a case of who you know. The last 3 jobs that I had before retiring were through chaps that I knew / worked with.
Very lucky or just being in the right place at the right time and being able to adapt to the way companies were changing.
