Thanks for the kind welcome and the great advice, I think a chat with an agent sounds like my best option at the moment.
To answer your question I am a production planner for a paper mill but have fast experience in production planning / management over several different manufacturing processes. Can you remember what agencies he sent his CV to ?
I live in Lordswood in Chatham and no I don't work for BAE. I work at the paper mill in Aylesford.
