    Hi, first time posting so apologies if it's in the wrong place. I am currently looking for a level 3 apprenticeship following a level 2 I completed. I had an interview on Friday and they said they were deciding on the day and would be in contact early next week, my issue is that I have another interview on Tuesday for a role that's more suited to me. If say I was successful for the first role, before I heard back from the second that I'm more interested in, how would I go about accepting that for the time being while waiting to see if I'm successful for the latter? The last thing I want is to accept the role because I need it but then not be able to take the role that's better for me.

    Moved to Apprenticeship’s for you

    I’d advised that you ask them when they need to know by, it might be the case that you can wait until the outcome of your other interview before deciding. What industry is this in?

    Accept the first one within the time frame they specify. Once you have accepted, if the second one makes you an offer, email the first offer and inform them that you are now unable to accept their offer and will be withdrawing your acceptance.
