Ruling on Working in a Conventional Bank Varies according to Situation

I have been working in a conventional bank (Riba-based bank) for seven years in a department that facilitates usury transactions. However, I have made up my mind to quit once I find a lawful job to support my family and myself. In fact, I received an offer to work in another conventional bank in the Arabian Gulf for a very high salary. I intend to seize this opportunity to collect as much money as I can, then establish a business of my own and leave the banking sector for good. This is knowing that I have tried to work in Islamic banks but didn`t get a chance to work there. What is the ruling of Sharia on this?
