.... and I work in a law firm in what they call their Document Processing Centre. Basically we get lenghty jobs of all sorts and some joe jobs as well. I've been doing this particular job only since the end of September. Not too sure how long it will last. Too much office politics for my liking. I recently returned from a four year gig working in a law firm in the Cayman Islands and may go back. But that's still up in the air. I will be visiting in February and that may tip the scales.:)

Accountant, how exciting is that!
28 days holiday a year with the odd hour off for good behaviour.

Handed my notice in 4 months ago and leaving at the end of Jan to spend 4 months in South America.

Will come back to be an Accountant, somebody gotta pay the mortgage, darn it.

Hey Wocca, you're right! Got paid in US$ as well.
Expensive cost of living though.
But hey - no taxes to pay! gotta love that.

Three weeks?? FOUR weeks?? I don't know what I'd do with that much vacation time. We (in the US), usually get about two weeks. I guess I'm lucky enough to get the standard two weeks and about 10 days of "personal" time. But I have to use those for sick days, doctor visits, whatever. But I can use those as extra vacation days if I don't need them for other stuff. I work in the financial markets in Chicago so I get a few federal holidays here and there also.

Plenty of vacation times for just beaching or chilling out
