I would say he takes it. Surely the company knows that moving a significant distance would lose them some of their staff and hence would mean they'd need a significant recruitment drive in 2017? Plus, I think jobhunting is an arena where one has to behave decently but ultimately look out for one's own self-interest above anything else - i.e. if they ask him whether he'd move with them in 2017, say that might be difficult; but if they offer the job with no tie-in to move with them then go for it - the company will be thinking of their overall goals not your husband's welfare when considering whether to take him on. (As I hope those close to me would attest, I think there are many things in the world more important than one's own self-interest and my general ethos is not a dog-eat-dog, look-after-number-1 one - but I do think that's the approach needed in jobhunting - you need to do what's right for you.) In terms of getting a new job if the company does relocate, surely having worked at that company won't decrease his chances of finding other employment - employer relocating a significant distance away is a perfectly reasonable reason to be looking for a new job relatively soon after returning to the UK and taking up that job. Just my tuppence worth anyway.

Agreed - the place I visited yesterday started life twenty miles to the north of me, fully intended to move twenty miles to the south, and has ended up bang in the middle two miles away!

I'm inclined to agree too - apart from anything else, it's always easier to get a job when you're in one, so even if you ended up looking for something else if they re-located, you'd have the advantage of being In Employment.

Good luck! [Smile]

I agree, Lucia - think you have made the right decision (assuming he gets the job!).

I am just back from my interview. I think nerves might have got the better of me [Frown] I'm not sure when I'll hear from them (posting out letters on the last posting day before Christmas doesn't bode that well for finding out quickly! I forgot that some employers still use snail mail - I got phoned the same day when I got the university job). I do at least know that they are doing all the interviews today, so should make a decision later today.

Anyway. Christmas can start now [Smile]

Hope you hear soon JtL. I didn't think anyone mailed you anymore. I've always either heard on the day (the dreaded all sitting around being polite while waiting for one of you to be called in again) or had a phone call either later the same day or the next morning.

Yes, that surprised me too. But then the NHS is a bit rickety still [Smile]

I am trying not to think about it - as I am overthinking again and wondering if they talked about snail mail as they knew even there and then they didn't want me so wouldn't be calling back today. I'm not going to hold my breath, but am going to get on with Christmas and see what happens. I'm actually knackered (didn't sleep brilliantly last night) so too tired to get too worked up about it. I'm just thinking of my 2 more days at work before a week and a bit off for Christmas, when I can recharge my batteries and think about where to go from here. And maybe they'll surprise me and offer me the job, but I just don't know.

For now it's time to chill out [Smile]

One of the departments in the building I used to work in would send you your rejection letter by post. Everything else by email, but the FOAD letter by post. And didn't understand why I found it offensive. Frankly, there are sizeable chunks of that place that could do with catching up with the 19th century, never mind the twenty-first.

Well, I have to say that I don't think today's interview went well, though with a bit of luck I've priced myself out of it anyway. The pay band started well below what I was for washing glassware some years ago! Now, if the chap I spoke to on Tuesday would just get back to me... that one would suit me perfectly in so many ways!

Oh, and I had a "making up my quota" email from an agency today. Asking for my latest CV when I've only been registered with them a week is a bit of a giveaway.

Harrumph!

Ah the "making up my quota" contact - I had one of those from an agency when I was right next to their door so popped in, finely dressed in allotment clothes. They just wanted to check nothing had changed in the last 2 weeks, and to tell me things are slow around Christmas. Well, what a surprise.

Has anyone here been a Mystery Shopper? I'm wondering about registering while I wait.

Thanks everyone. With the benefit of a couple of days distance, I am assuming I haven't got the job (even though they didn't say anything about phoning on the day, I still kind of assume they would phone the successful candidate), but am feeling better about that than I thought I would. Maybe they'll surprise me, but I'm not holding my breath, and with the break over Christmas I'll start thinking about other options.

When I have been on higher committees, we normally check references before offering a position. Depending on the availability of the references, this could take several days.

...and see one of my many blarts upthread for details about time taken to provide references!

Still waiting to hear from Oxford Genetics about whether they want me - or Evotec for that matter, but the OG job would suit me much better. Come on, get it in before Christmas, you know I'm available!

Dilemma over.. he didn't get offered the job. But it was all good practice filling in an application and having an interview. In reality it's probably a bit early for serious job hunting as we are not back in the UK until next summer.

Sandemaniac, in Canada a perspective employee provides a list of 3-5 individuals who have agreed to be references. The employer calls the references and speaks with them. Letters of reference are almost dead in Canada.

And I have just this minute posted the paperwork, and confirmed via email, so hopefully I will start on January 4th. Failing that, as soon as possible afterwards - but before my next signing on date, whatever.

I spent a very enjoyable few minutes earlier unsubscribing from lots of email job alerts, especially the crock of shite that is Glassdoor.

Just to say I will also be starting a new job on Monday.

It still feels very unreal and I am even questioning why I decided to leave in the first place.. it no longer feels like such a sensible decision!

I will really miss my colleagues and clients but I know there is no turning back and am trying to stay positive for the future, even though the job I am moving to is not what I really wanted.

Best of luck Sandemanic - let me know what it feels like to start in a new place after a long time in the previous job. I will need all the advise I can get, as I have been in this role for 5 yeas and moving on feels really scary!

I have only just seen your news. Congratulations from the both of us - I hope the first week went well, and that you settle in quickly.
Happy new year to you and Knotweed.

Thanks everyone - it's been a slow first week as I haven't been able to do anything until I've had the 'elf and safety induction, and the H&S man didn't get back until Thursday... and I wasn't in on Friday! So hopefully it'll happen tomorrow and I can get going! The signs look good, though.

geroff - cameras?
