I have just agreed to take a new job, passed references stage, signed contract and sent over a new starter form and resigned from current post. The only matter outstanding is to agree a new start date but legally I have to give 3 months notice so there is a set timeframe to work to.
Thing is, I have just seen an advert for a preferred role with a different company. Should I apply or leave well alone? I've never been in this position before. Morally I feel I should leave well alone but I do prefer the other role. My new role I got through an agency so it may also reflect badly on them if I was found out/it went through and my work is that of a professional so I worry it would reflect badly on me. In new role I have 6 month probationary period with one week notice on either side. What would be your advice? Should I leave well alone or apply and just see what happens given I might not get it anyway? Thank you.
