I used to work in schools as a teacher then a senior leader. I’m now a Researcher/Analyst for JISC infoNet.People have asked me recently about the differences between the two. Here’s the best 3 things about my new role: 1. Flexi-time: I can work more at times when I’m more productive and take holidays at times that suit me. 2. Social media: We’re positively encouraged to use social media at work – and there’s minimal Internet filtering! 3. Work-life balance: I now actually *have* some of the latter half of this equation… So yes, I’m enjoying it. Do I miss being in the classroom? Of course! Do I miss all of the stuff that goes with it? No way!
