We lived just outside Woking. Village of Horsell to be exact.

Jules was an Interior Designer for a company in Bagshot(I think) and she used to drive to Basingstoke to work on executive show apartments for builders.

There's a Magic Roundabout in Swindon with one major roundabout with 5 or 6 mini's attached to it.

That sounds the same as the one in a place I cannot remember (about junc 8 on M1). I used to enjoy driving around the wrong way just because you could

If you search EDS on here, someone previously tried to get a transfer with EDS and didn't succeed. I guess it depends on your area though, EDS is a big company and could vary from division to division at a guess. I personally know someone who went from the UK to EDS Australia and they sorted it all out for her, so it's certainly possible.

My advice from my own experience is don't approach people in the UK about it, they will dismiss it without investigating it for you. Find the persons responsible for your area of work within Canada/Americas and approach them direct, if they're interested, you can then tell your bosses back in the UK what you intend to do....

Good luck!
G77 you don't work for CSC do you?

No real demand in Fredericton for Interior Designers. It is a rural town and it doesnt have enough of people would be willing to pay for that sort of service.

Jules has established a business making purses(handbags to you and I), wraps, scarves etc and set up a sweat shop in the basement (she is her only employee slaving away in the basement and looking after me )

I work for CSC and I've asked the Canada HR ppl about intra-company transfers and it's not very positive. They require me to apply 'externally' there and retire from my job here..
