Oh how I can feel your pain!  I’m in a situation at my job where I’m also no longer happy there.  Although, I’m not as fortunate as you to have a boss that I feel like wants to work with me.  I only work part-time and they are cutting my hours even more…makes me feel like they are trying to push me out the door.  I’ve been looking around for a new job so I can just get out of that toxic enviroment, but the thing is, it’s like there’s no jobs out there! 

In your situation, you are fortunate in that it seems like your boss and HR wants to work with you to help you stay.  I’m not sure what exactly they could do to make you feel happy there, but at least they appear as if they would try if they could just figure out what to do with you.  I think you should at least look for another job and see if something peaks your interests.  If not, at least you still have a job.  Oh, and another thing to think about (because I learned the hard way)…you can’t take bosses you like with you.  So, you might also want to think about having a job you don’t love, but having a boss you like vs. possibly finding a job you love, but having a horrible boss.  Things are rough at your job right now as far as new positions go because of the fact that it’s the last quarter of your financial year, but will that improve in a couple of months?  Will there be the possibility to move around then?

That will be great to set up a meeting with the director, hopefully he’ll be able to give you the inside scoop on any possible future openings that you might be interested in.  I really hope they are able to find something that makes you happy and that also works for them because I think that’s how companies should work…yeah they need to look out for themselves, but they also need to keep their employees happy to keep their company strong!

I really think you should start sending your resume outside the company.  It sounds like the company you are with doesn’t have a lot of free money so there may not be many availabilities within for you to take advantage of.  If things do open up at your company, apply for them but I wouldn’t put my eggs in only one basket.
