      Congrats Sample.

      Been told this morning I've got a temporary promotion for the next 3-6 months.

      A nice bump up in the pay packet every month will pay for the holidays this year.

      Just been offered a new job.

      Going from 45 hours, 5 days over 7 days to 35 hours over Mon - Fri.

      Different sector completely, different job role with a pay cut but a much better work/life balance for me. Cannot wait!

      Thanks mate!

      That's my thinking too, not all about money at the end of the day. Will be dropping about £250p/m but have been told there's always overtime and bank holiday work available and I can choose whether to do it but it's time and a half and double time respectively.

      I'm over the moon to be fair, needed to make the change as I was really unhappy in my last role in retail management.

      It’s all about quality of life mate. Took me far too long to realise that.

      Well done for identifying and acting on it.

      Seems to be a bit of a trend reliable staff for small business got a few mates similar to you and they all struggle for reliable staff ,got a mate with a catering business , had to give up some big contracts for the want of reliable people , another mate runs a small engineering and fabrication business and he’s in the same boat quite worrying where the trend is going .

      Yeah, I noticed it before I moved to the UK actually, and I got a retail job offer after searching for a couple of months when I got here. Don't get me wrong I loved my staff and respected a lot of other colleagues in the business, but my line manager hadn't a clue how to motivate or people manage and made me feel like I couldn't take days off so I knew I needed to pack it in.

      I left my last job on Thursday last week and interviewed for this one on Friday. Funny how things work out.

      Have to agree with everyone in regards to reliable workers though, found it very hard to recruit in my last role. I think some of it is the fact that so many big business f**k people over with sh*t hours and sh*t contracts and then everyone gets tarred with the same brush.
