I’m a floater. I don’t belong to any team, group or function. Being project based means I’m not attached to any particular area, and I have very little day to day contact with all but a few people. It’s great. But then again it’s a little lonely and people wonder what I do (well, I post here and I write stuff, to be honest 🙂 ).
But recently I’ve been semi-adopted by the C&B / Operations team, yay! They’re really great, and we’re all specialists anyway. They include me in their social gatherings, and today I went to their lunchtime team meeting so I can talk about one of my projects. I can return to the next meetings! It’s good, cos I don’t exactly report to the head, but I work closely with her. We’re in different cost centres so no conflict but I’m excited about working closer with them.
