A 2014 grad currently working as a mail sorter for royal mail. I've been there since the beginning of December as part of the extra xmas staff they take on, and they have decided to keep me on permanently due to other staff leaving.
The job is boring, and I get paid £6.50 an hour... It isn't going to get me anywhere soon.
Meanwhile I'm actively searching for other jobs in the city concentrating on the sales/ marketing sector. All will have better pay, ability to gain better working exp, and I will be able to move out of my parents home. Will employers see that I have only been working at RM for a month and a bit and see me as unloyal? Given the opportunity, I will leave this place ASAP. Furthermore, RM will not be happy with me leaving so soon.
So what should I do?
Not mention I worked here at all. The last job I had before this was 2 months ago, meaning I'd have to explain a 3-4 month gap.
Or should I mention it - Being quite an unskilled and unrelated job to ones I will be applying for, would they even bother with the reference?
Any advice will be much appreciated - thanks!

- Hired for Christmas
- Kept on as a permanent employee because of quality of my work
- Good interim role, but not where skills and career aspirations lie
- This job is where I want to be
RM have no say in whether you get a new job or not, so their annoyance is immaterial
Only give details of references when you are asked, they aren't an issue before that. Employers usually only take up references once they are going to offer you the job.
