Hi all. This is just a 'be aware and take care' story. The week before last I was offered a job with a teacher agency and invited to start immediately. But as I was already working for another school so the best I could do was give the agency a week’s notice and I eventually left my old school last Friday - car loaded with essentials for my new apartment and a relative installed to take care of it.
Five minutes before setting off for my first day at the new job, I got a telephone call from the agency saying that the position, for whatever reason, was no longer on offer. So now here I am - stuck in the village with no job, no income and feeling very distressed. And it is, of course Christmas week!
My better half is in a state of deep depression and it is all my responsibility and, indeed my fault. I should have got a contract from the agency before handing in my notice at my previous school……..but I didn't. If anything similar happens to you, quell the enthusiasm and think first. I certainly wish I had. Any jobs out there?!!
