I accepted the new job offer!
Alright, this is it. I succumbed to temptation. It will be a little silly of me if I turn down the 40% uplift.
Finally nailed down the contract. Signed, sealed and delivered. I mentioned back in July that I had a new job offer. Finally agreed on the T&Cs/package and got the contract last week. Exciting times ahead but it will still be a while before I join the new company as I have a relatively long notice period.
Took a while to think through this move as my current role as what my friends would say is a "dream job". However, I didnt think it will be sustainable in the long run as I am "artificially" put into a junior role.
Eventually I will be asked to get out of this extremely comfy cocoon, at the next level, this will involve alot of stakeholders management across the whole world which I really hated when I was in similar position previously.
