Okay so here is my dilema....
I need to return to work in a few months for financial reasons. I am currently on Mat leave, but I hated my job before I left. Basically my role had kind of turned into adhoc tasks rather than admin/accounts which is my position description. At the time I didnt say anything because I was about to go on leave and didnt really think they would do anything as I was about to go on leave. There was also some office politics and it was really stressful. I felt like I was always whinging about my job to my DH. It was also aprox 45mins in travel time each way (no traffic)
I was working fulltime and will be going part time - 2 days per week. I was planning on having a meeting before going back outlining what I want/need from my job and seeing what they want/need from me and seeing if we can work something out. Also I know that if I work part time I am more likely to not be involved in the office politics, just go in, do my job and go home.
If I go back to my previous employer, I can get away with working 2 days per week, however if I find a new job I would have to work at least 3. Also if I find a new job, I might find something closer to home and a bit less travel time.
I'm wondering if I should return to my old job (meet with them first and ensure I am happy with the terms) or cut my losses and find something else? Love to hear your experiences...
Thanks in advance
