    They both look pretty interesting but trying to work out about the commute from St Pancras to the office ... that is what has put me off a few London jobs recently.

    Yes any further info would be welcome. I have Network Management experience which has recently grown to involve project management but not within the ITIL framework they are looking for.

    As the job has been up for so long they are either extremley fussy about what they are looking for or nobody is applying!

    The job hasn't been up for long - they just go through Service Delivery Managers rather quickly.

    Being an SDM in any organisation is a tough job and you live and die by the successes and failures of the people beneath you. It is especially tough when the people below you make cock ups and it is covered up by the SLT in their schools so *you* get to carry the can.

    (NB : I am not talking about ARK in this case but I am referring to a friend working for another MSP)

    Suddenly it doesn't seem like such an attractive post. Think I'll stay where I am for now.
