    Hi,

    i have recently attended and passed the assessment centre with IBM for a placement year. On the day I was applying for a finance role with a preference for London stated on my questionnaire. This morning I received my interview offer however they have given me a business role based in Portsmouth. Whilst I am extremely happy to have an offer off IBM, as they were my number one company choice to work for, I am slightly disappointed with the role I have been assigned. I am wary about discussing my concerns with them, and was considering emailing them and stating how I am grateful for my job offer but wondering if they have any positions of a similar variety in London, although if this is not an option I will still be ok with Portsmouth. I am unsure however of their policy on this and how they respond to people querying a change in their offer. I think I will be much happier in London and therefore will work better, and am slightly concerned about placing myself in an environment for a year that I will not be happy in. However I would much rather risk my happiness of the location than risk my job offer with IBM. Can anybody help me who has requested a change of location before or who knows how this works? Sorry for the essay, thanks in advance!
