Working at Expat Network was very challenging but very rewarding in many ways. As a membership organisation with a very high retention in renewals we were more like a big international family.
All the staff were supportive and bordering on workaholics, often our deadlines were crazy, especially the monthly magazine and annual directory - everybody pulled together.
The company closed in its present form and we were all made redundant.
I was part of the management team and we always tried to be good managers, allowing our staff flexibility.
The most enjoyable part of the work was the communication - 99% positive about the magazine I produced.
