Bit of background, I have been in my current job for 6 year (1yr mat leave). I’ve worked hard and proven myself since I returned from mat leave.
Today my director asked to catch up with me, basically has me earmarked for a new role they are creating and wanted to talk to me about. Its exciting, a great opportunity, and a real area of focus for the business.
The problem is, I’m 8 weeks pregnant. DH says its too early to say anything and it should have no bearing on whether I get the job or not. For me, keeping them in the dark and then announcing it once the job is signed and sealed seems a bit dishonest. As I said it’s a new role, a focus area for the business, and I would likely be going on mat leave 5 months in. I was probably only having to have 6 months off, and would even consider 4, but who knows how I will feel, so don’t want to put that on table.
