Hi all, I have an urgent need to move jobs and I wont go into why that is. I’m looking into entering the public service and have an interview next week. However I’m concered that if successful it could possibly take months to find out and for the position to commence. Is that accurate? Due to the need to leave my current workplace I need to find somewhere a lot quicker than 2 months or so. If i entered into a 3 month contract I assume that could be a problem if I got the job and there was still some time left on the contract, greater than 4 weeks? Or would there be some flexibility given that each step is so long in the whole process? I’m not keen on the idea of bailing on a contract, I’m not really that sort of person.
I was also wondering if anyone could enlighten me to the significance of the election having being called today? Is that likely to stymie the whole process?
Also, are there likely to be less APS jobs advertised as a result of the election having been called? If so when would conditions likely return to ‘normal’ or start picking up again?
I would love to get some feedback on this so I can make informed decisions!!
