Potential new job watch

    • Thread Starter

    Basically I been offered a new job in human resource. It is a fixed term contract but if i achieve everything the company wants me to do I will be offered a
    permanent role, the job also means moving away from home. I will be giving advice/ support and coaching to managers to help them in their roles. I will not be investigating or making decisions on the cases. I am a bit worried that this job is not interesting enough. Would you take it?

    You dont give enough information tbh. If a permanent job is importnat then get the offer in writing. Make a pros and cons list.

    Have you always been interested in HR? If the money is good and you've been struggling with getting a job then I'd go for it. It might not be that fulfilling or exciting to start with but eventually the role will evolve I would think and you'll be given more responsibility and decision making etc.

    Thanks I know someone who does the same job in the same company and asked him for more information. Basically he just give advice and support to manager and coach them to help them become better managers in dealing with HR situations. He been doing it for nearly two years and he told me he does not make decisions or investigate cases.

    You really arent giving enough information.

    Is it an area which you think you will enjoy?
    Do you have a choice?
    Whats the pay like?
    Will advising managers and being bacroom be interesting for you or do you still wnat to do cases?

    Go for a drink with the person who does it.

    Something must have attracted you to apply to the role. If it's a FTC then why not accept the role, gain more experience and continue to look for other roles. Just because hey say it could lead to a permanent role, doesn't mean it will and if anything gives you the flexibility to walk away quite conveniently after 12 months if you don't like it.
