I have posted that there are limited opportunities for advancing my career right now here in the UK. But an opportunity has arisen in the US... a good one. Things are not likely to change much here in the near future. The NHS is still restructuring, while public health is moving from the domain of the NHS and devolving to the local authorities (town and city governments). Private industry is holding its collective breath while the fate of the EU and the economy remains uncertain.
The US opportunity is with a company that is growing by huge leaps and bounds. My partner is a university professor here. One of the reasons I moved here and not vice-versa was because my skills were so easily transferrable. Now that I've become more specialized, my options have narrowed. We are now facing at least a brief period of being apart. Relocation for my partner is a bit more complicated.
Many of the people living here have partners who work on oil rigs in the North Sea and may not see each other for many months on end. I thought it odd at first, but now I'm facing a similar scenario. Have you ever had to live apart from your partner for work? Would you take a job knowing that it would mean at least temporary separation?
