Hi. I am new to this forum but joined in the hope that some people might give me good advice.


I have worked in my current job since leaving school. I am on a good rate of pay with good perks, good working hours and a good non-contributory pension........


What's the problem you ask??....well, I am bored and brain dead and realisation is hitting home that if I don't do something soon, my retirement will be here before I know it.


I have applied for a couple of jobs in a field which I am very interested in, and was lucky enough to get an interview for one........and got it - but alot less pay!


Am I stupid and selfish to even be considering taking this post in todays financial climate? Should I be grateful I have a job paying a good wage? Or is life too short to be institutionalised in one job........(ps the only reason I'm on a good rate of pay is because of my length of service).


Thanks everyone.

you need to consider overall finances, not just wages.


take a look at your pension.....Have you asked your current employer if they are looking for people to take a vol. redundancy package ???


At the end of they day, you need to do what will make you happy.
