I started in my first role after uni within the public sector, I applied for a generic support role and I have found myself in procurement earning close to £30K with great holidays and flexi. I have been in the role for a year. The thing is I hate the role, I am not commercially minded and find it all very very boring. I have no business interest what so ever!
I have to stay in the role for a min of 2 years then I can move on within the department. The thing is there are lots of other sections which sound hugely interesting. Do I stick at it and look to move on after another year to another area of the department?
The thing is I just hate the role I am doing currently, while I have been told in a couple of years I could get promoted in the area I hate, I would rather shift right and do something more interesting without the commercial edge which I hate. Far to many meetings talking about strategy, supplier performance etc. I want a role which is delivering something!

I'm no expert so I can only speak for myself. Whenever I'm at a cross road it usually boils down to some sort of fear. Fear of making the wrong decision and fear of regret. It's a negative emotion and one that shouldn't come into the decision making process.
Embrace the uncertainty list the pros and cons, create a plan (always have a plan) and make a decision.
If you stay make sure it's because you decided to stay (pros and cons etc)and not because you just did nothing.
