Just learnt that my company is shelving all development work and concentrating on current product markets...as a development engineer this means bad news for me.

Get ready for deals on some of my bikes when I run out of things to eat :(

(on the other hand the redundancy package should be relativly sizeable...fingers crossed)

Any one need any work doing in the medical devices industry?

Who do you work for Rob an what exactly do you do? I can certainly put the feelers out. Is it the Oxford area that you want/need to work in?
I work for Siemens Healthcare so have a few medical contacts
