Applying for a job

Applying for my own job that is!!! The teacher I'm covering for will be returning to work in February but wants to job share.  As there is a vacant job share position in the school she will automatically get it.  That means her old job (ie the one I'm doing right now) is being advertised as a full time PERMANENT post.  So, I'm applying for my own job.

There is also a temporary post available in school at the same time, covering another maternity leave for a year.  I'm also applying for that.

I'm hoping that as I'm an internal candidate I'll get an interview but there are no guarantees.  The new head teacher might want to bring in some young blood.  I have a feeling I've got a better chance of getting the maternity cover but a permanent post is what I really need to secure my retirement.

I've sent my 2 applications tonight.  Deadline is Friday so maybe by next week I'll know if I get an interview.  Keep your fingers crossed for me please!


  1. Good Luck - fingers crossed that you do get an interview and the permanent post xx

  2. Ooh, fingers crossed - break a leg! (not really but you know what I mean!)

  3. Crossed, double crossed and good luck :)

  4. Fingers Crossed!
    Wishing you the best of opportunities,

  5. Aww, thanks you lovely people :-) I'll keep you posted!

  6. Everything and a whole lot more crossed for you, lovely soul :) Positive thoughts and love
