Looking to return to work after being on Maternity leave and was hoping for 2 days per week but would do up to 3 days. I just went for a job interview and the role, conditions etc are perfect. Its 21hrs per week, which is ok but i would prefer less.
Now im pretty sure i got the job as they asked me to do a crimjnal history check and contacted at least one of my references.
1. If offered just take e job
2. Ask when offered the job to see if you could negotiate hours down a little (say maybe 2.5days, instead of 3 or 2 days one week, 3 the next)
3. Accept 3 days and at the end of probation see if you could negotiate hours down if you felt you could do the job in less hours.
Being 3 days isnt a deal breaker, i will take the job (if offered). It is a government job, if that helps ppls decisions.
