Pastures new

11th September 2014

I recently handed in my resignation at the agency. It was the single hardest thing I’ve had to do in a long, long while. I’ve been at McCann now for just over two years, two very good years. I’ve learnt a lot in that time and made some true friends. I’ll miss the place terribly, more than people realise. It’s a weird feeling, being in control of your own destiny. The last few jobs I’ve had, someone else made the call but there I was making the call. I agonised over it for weeks infact months as the job I took up has been on the table for a considerable amount of time.

New challenges

So what will I be doing? Who will I be joining? Well I’m sticking with the UX and it will be for an agency called Farm who are based in Manchester. I’m going to be working with a group of people I know and I cannot wait to get started. It’s going to be a challenge but hey, that’s what life is about right?

Working in Manchester also means I get to be more social so expect drink invites if you are about in town.

But we’re not there yet. I have time left at the agency before I leave and I want to enjoy the time I have left with the team plus we have a couple of projects to get live before I go.

I’ve been very lucky in the two years I have worked there. You spend the majority of your day with work colleagues and I couldn’t have picked a better bunch to work with. Expect me to cry on my last day. I’m dreading it.
