    My work have made me aware that if I need time off for interviews, it's not happening unless A) I give them at least 6 weeks notice prior to the interview or B) find my own cover (when the know fully well no one will cover)
    They have said if I go to the interviews without permission, I will lose the job?

    I think I should put my uni before my job and tell them to screw their job if it comes to it. However others have told me that my job comes first.

    Can people air their views on this for me? Thanks

    I swear employers had to let you go to university interviews. i cant remember but i know my employer let me go to all mine even though they didnt want to and my friend said its because they have to. I dont know how true this is. but uni is more important the the job in the long run. Is there a possibility to change the interview dates? But yeah go to the university interviews imo

    i don't know for a fact, but i'm sure these things are against your rights as an employee...

    so far, my employer's let me take days off for interview practice, driving tests and for my birthday i have a sat amount of days i'm allowed to take off as annual leave (i'm employed by the NHS)... who's ur employer/where do u work?

    If your weekend staff, then it doesn't matter, as un interviews are never usually on the weekend, most of the time they are on during wednesday.
