So a friend has been trying to get a new role at her work, it has not existed previously but they were open to discussing this potential role with her, except every time it was time for an interview they put her off. Today I saw an ad in the job section of the weekend paper for this very job......except she is out of the country. (I wonder if this is deliberate and they don't want her to have this role, it has not been widely advertised and is not on the company website). So, if this was you, would you want to be told while on your holidays, or not be told and get to enjoy your holidays?
FTR, I sent her a message and told her, but I am wondering if I have done the wrong thing and ruined her holiday?

Would you want to know? Even if it ruined your holiday?

I would want to know.

Yeah, I think I would have too but I don't want her to stew on it while she is meant to be relaxing.

No I wouldn't. I'm a big believer in not worrying about things I can't change. Unless she can do something about it while she's away I wouldn't want to know.

Man while I'm on holiday I don't want to know about work....!

In this case I would tell because it's obviously important to her and is something she's been trying to achieve for a period of time. And due to her holiday she may miss the opportunity she's been waiting for. I'm presuming she's somewhere with internet access, so can put in a little time to submit an application. But I wrote school reports on my honeymoon, so I may be the exception to the rule here :-)

I think you've done the right thing because at least now she's got a head's up, so she can either apply for it herself, or at least get into the right head space (with the head's up) for when she starts back at work again. I actually think it was lovely of you to let her know.

I wouldn't have told her. As an internal applicant the same job process would likely not apply so she wouldn't have to submit an application in the same way an external person would. They already know she is interested and are probably just scoping out the market to ensure she is the right choice.
But it's not a huge deal.
