I have been friends with a chum for quit a few years now and although we don’t catch up with each other very often, maybe three or four times a year, we cover much ground when we do. Lots of chat about what our families have been up to since the last lunch – what no.1 daughter is up to now on either side, and has everyone still got jobs etc. It turns out that one of our daughters is taking up a new post and moving away from the charity sector and into public service as a civil servant. At interview when pay and progression bands were were discussed, she stated she was only interested in joining them at the top, not working her way up. As she said, she had spent years honing her leadership skills and was now well placed to use them. She got the job, everything she asked for.
