Hi I got my social worker license in August and applied for jobs and got offered a job as a NQ with the older adults team (first interview)- it was not a field I wanted to work in but a job is a job. The travelling is far, but being new to the social work market I took what was offered- as suggested by my tutors at University who always said jobs were scarce and to take what was offered.
I had not heard from other jobs so I went ahead and accepted this job and got clearance and a start date.
Anyhow, I got an interview with Leaving Care Team (this is my field, the one I want to work in more than anything in the world and a vacancy became available at a borough close to where I live- I did this as part of my placement but due to financial constraints Brent did not offer me a job) ....so I thought, just give it a go and see what happens- and low and behold, I got offered the post (I can talk about LC till the cows come home)
So I am in a dilemma.....I haven't signed anything but the contract which was emailed to me says there is nothing to sign. I really want to work in LC (and the pay is higher too!!)......but how can I get out of the first job when the start date is 1 week away?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated
