You found a job for me 3 years ago at TMETC. Although I have now left the company having found a new opportunity, I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks as the last 3 years have been a completely enriching experience.

I managed to get support from many people who played a huge part in my promotion to Project Manager from Project Engineer.
