    Hi everyone

    I was recently offered a volunteering role which i turned down, now looking back i deeply regret it. I sent an email to the interviewer a few days later asking if the role was still available for me to be considered and that I couldn't really think about it at the time (it was a telephone offer). I didn't realise I could take some time with a telephone offer aswell. The interviewer hasn't replied to my follow up email, I've sent it twice to them. I was wondering whether it was a good idea to ring them instead. I understand that I am not exactly a priority atm but I think it is very unlike the interviewer to not respond as they responded quite quickly when we were initially emailing each other about the interview which makes me think that my email has just gone to the bottom of the list or something. The job post was taken down before my interview so I cant use this as a determining factor about whether the position is gone or not. Would it look like I'm bombarding this person if I ring them after emailing them. I emailed them on Thursday evening so they had Friday and today to respond which is quite long as they were responding to my initial email within minutes. I also want to call as I've applied for another position at the company and want to know whether I also have to go through the same application process or not but my primary reason would be to inquire about the initial position first.

    TLDR: I turned down a volunteer role, emailed the interviewer twice who hasn't replied. Was wondering whether it is a good idea to call or not.
