A little over a year ago, I made a difficult decision to take voluntary redundancy from a library post. It was really tough to do, because I felt I had found a career that I really loved - working in libraries was what I wanted to do.

I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed studying so much and it’s encouraged me to start exploring different information sectors. It’s not all easy and plain-sailing, but it’s worth it!
