I've been informed that my present assignment at the London Clearing House will end at the beginning of March. This is cool, because I won't be out of a job as a result. This is the beauty of working for a consultancy: you get paid when you're not out on site at a client's, when you're "on the bench". I will have been at LCH for 4 years, come February, and my employers are quite pleased with me, having such a long assignment.
LCH are going to be hiring a permie as a replacement. I've also been tasked with coming up with a job spec. If you're interested, see my posting to the banking.pm list, use the contact details given. There's not much Perl involved in this job; the Perl may wither once I have gone.
Depending on what my employers want me to do next, I may be spending more time in the Perl Community. Also, in the mean time, I'm not particularly motivated to do much for LCH.
