2 jobs to decide on

Postby JL77 » Mon Oct 22, 2007 12:02 pm

HELP ME PLEASE I am so confused, I really am.

I got a job offer a few months ago but the centre couldnt open because they couldnt find an ect. well they have found one and she rang me this week and wants to meet up again to discuss everything. Its about a 30 min drive from my house and the vibe is just great coming from there. Its a private center and the owner has no chilccare back ground so me and the etc will practually be running the place, which is great for my career but could be very risky.

Now i have been offord a job in a childcare center which is in a local hospital, I could walk to work and being govenrment I would get maternaiti leave etc? but is this enough for me to turn down the other job. I just dont know what to do I am so stressed about it

I think the first one would benifet you more & give you more of an role & a better career & could pay more aswell, seeing that you you would be doing more & if you get more of an vibe then go with your instincts. I think if the goverment & council is willing to let her open up a centre then it should be alright. Meet up with her first & if you still fell happy & welcome then go for it, yes it is a little further to travel but it could be a better job & more rewarding. Goodluck with your decision & let us know how you go.

hmm it is hard. privately run centres tend to go a bit cheap and nasty because the owners are stingy LOL maybe you can negotiate things like maternity leave, bonuses etc. especially as you say you will basically be running the place. it also means more work on your behalf. the government job is great. if i ever got a government job i dont think id ever leave LOL. are you happy where you are?

if you are getting on well with the director of the new place just mention that somewhere in the future you guys are looking at starting a family and if theyre supportive of that decision. you are being honest about it and you can work right up until you have the baby if you really wanted to. i worked in child care up to 39 weeks and that was with special needs focus children who would lash out at people.
