Recently I was head hunted and offered a new job supporting young people in a Job Club for three days a week. Over the past five or six weeks I’ve been trying to negotiate keeping two days at my current job (supporting parents) while taking up the new offer too. The whole process has been (and to a large degree still is) something of a nightmare partly because of my current employers reluctance to process my application swiftly. Although my standard checks (enhanced DBS) are through and I have a reference secured from a previous employer my current employers are still very much in the slow lane with it all.
I suppose the reason I’m writing this is as an apology to readers who enjoy calling in to my two web sites for a daily read and who lately have seen very little posted because so much of my brain space and emotions are being soaked up with this ongoing issue. What I would say is that hopefully it won’t be too long before its all resolved as my new employer wants me to start next week. Perhaps what I’m reserving my energies for is in case I need to take the bull by the horns and force the issue. Please bear with me and I’ll let you know what happens as soon as ‘something’ does happen after which I can get back to blogging X Alan X
