Hello all, Around 7 weeks ago i was made redundant by JLR. I have been looking for work since then but no joy however i have finally had 2 interviews within the last week. I feel both went well. Both jobs are entry level jobs in new areas for me. 1 is within a local accounting firm. Essentially i will start of the bottom of the accountancy chain and over time work my way up whilst becoming qualified but by bit. This is around a 20k paycut to start with as i was on just over 40k at JLR but i can afford to do it and i also did accountancy during my college days but that was 20 years ago but i did enjoy it all things considered so have been giving a lot of thought as to self studing and doing AATor ACCA anyway. The 2nd job is working for a water company, entry level technician. Start by doing maintenance on the water systems in designated areas and then working your up through the engineering ranks as you receive more training. This is around a 15k paycut to start with, again i can afford to take the hit. I have 0 experience in this field but all relevant training will be provided. The water company have just rang me and left me a voicemail basically saying the jobs mine and can i give them a call back to discuss and confirm details. When i left the interview for the Accountancy firm last night the managing director said the job is as good as mine he just needs to work out the logistics of where to put me ,as someone who is currently doing the entry level stuff is now dying to tackle some juicier work. He said he will come back to me on Monday 1st April. I liked all the people at both companies and am interested in both jobs but as of this time i only have 1 firm offer. I know that until the MD from the accounting company actually offers me a contract to take whatever is said lightly. SO i guess my question is what do i say to the water company for now? I don't want to leave them hanging with no reply for 2 working days, that would be strange but also i would like to give the other firm till Monday. Although the accountancy job is less money to start with it doesn't involve night working which the water company does. Having just left night shifts after years and years i have no desire to return to it at 38 years old. As a career i also have a preference for accountancy as i do not know what the water technicains work will be like. What is the best way to handle this wise people of OCUK? Thanks in advance.
