should I stay or should I go?

There’s are jobs going at a company that I’ve wanted to work at for a few years. It’s in essentially the same field that I work in now, just a slightly different sort of company (quite a bit smaller). I’ve met the director a few times and we get on fairly well – he gets on very well with my boss, who knows that I like this little company. The company is based in a small town about 40 minutes train ride from the city that I live in (reverse commute situation).

The job ad is a little confusing – they are looking for people with between 1 and 3 years experience, yet the two different job titles would suggest something more like 1-3 or 3-5+ years experience. I have around 6-7 years. Whilst they might employ me, I’m not sure whether that means that they’re limiting the salaries on offer to something considerably less than I make (like £5k less?).

I’ll be discussing this with my informal semi-mentor (ex-colleague about 4-5 years older / more experienced) when he gets back from his overseas trip. But what do you guys think?

Oh yeah, I’ve also spent most of the day at work continuously thinking that I need to get out, despite the fact that I’m actually doing quite interesting things and have great colleagues.
