Re: Job lined up
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), having a public sector appointment on your CV is unlikely to help you to transition to a private sector role. Your skillset has to be seriously in demand to make it happen. So much bad publicity around numerous high-profile public sector projects has seen to that. Lets say your company wants to start planning a new desktop rollout, which is something that happens (almost) everywhere all the time. Anyone fancy employing a senior NHS IT manager with a history of managing desktop rollouts? No, I thought not.
