oh yeah - dont get me started on 1 year teaching contracts !!!
its freaking ridiculous
Hubbies Division was only moved over to this Department a year ago and it has been one huge continual **** up.
I will also add the kicker in all this. After he did his training and was sworn in by the Director General, the paperwork was on the Ministers Desk to be signed off for permanency......then Cambell Newman and his cronies won the election and everything was put on hold, never to be heard of again it would appear
Anyway with this case it may be far too early to start getting knickers in a knot over unfair recruitment practices (not saying venting about job security isn't ok, because it is totally understandable!)
I know it's hard but try not to worry until the recruitment is over. Chances are your hubby will get a job. In the meantime there's nothing you can do unless your hubby is in the union. If there is a large enough group of people affected perhaps they could lobby the new government/go to the media.
This post was actually started because I wanted practical advice. DH is the main income earner supporting all 6 of us (I only work 15 hours per week at present) We are both majorly stressed, exasperated by the fact that there is a history of bad recruitment processes
- ask the appropriate union for help
- get a second eye/professional to run their eye over the job app/criteria
- get your Dh's boss to review his app and provide feedback
