I've been working for my current company since April last year. I currently work in an administrative role. I am a contractor with an ongoing contract. After 2 months of me working here, my manager left and my new line manager is currently working part time so I ended up doing a lot more of what I was hired for. I've been approached before by my new manager saying they are "fighting" to making me perm but this is a conversation that keeps going on since the summer, and at this point, I don't buy it anymore. I really like the company so i would like to find a way to speak clearly to my manager to get some real answers. Any suggestions?
