I got the job!!!

It’s 2.40am, and I’ve just walked in the door from work, and I just couldn’t wait until tomorrow to blog about my news! The Hotliner who is on from 6pm-2am called in sick, so they asked me to cover his shift … I was on 4pm-midnight shift on the phones, so I said I’d take on the extra 2 hours at the end as overtime – and that’s a good thing, as it looks like I’ll need every cent I can get my hands on for a while …

At 11.30pm tonight I got a call from the Hotline Supervisor, Sally, to say she couldn’t go to sleep without calling me – she finished work at 3pm, so left before I arrived at work … anyway, earlier today they gave the approval to fill another Hotline vacancy from the last interview intake, and I was next on the list for the job, so I got offered the job straightaway as it was inside 3 months of the original jobs being advertised. Unfortunately, as we’d already guessed, the job is a full-time day shift Senior Consultant role, which is a drop in pay due to no shift penalties, but I’ve accepted it anyway as that’s the role I really want – and I’ve put my name down to be switched to shift work as soon as a vacancy comes up (which will hopefully be soon, as they’re advertising for a Supervisor position at the moment, and it’s likely a shift Hotliner will get that job, leaving another shift Hotline position open).

The hardest thing about being told so late tonight is that I couldn’t share it with anyone! So my work email was getting worked overtime as I let my family, Fraze and Hayles know … I’ll have to crack open a bottle of wine tomorrow to celebrate properly … even though I’ll be getting home after midnight again after another 2 hours overtime (this time from 2pm-4pm) – that means hopefully tomorrow will be my final day ever on the ‘normal’ phones, as I’m relieving another Hotliner for 3 weeks from Wednesday, then my new day shift roster will probably kick in.

Anyway, just wanted to share the happy news! πŸ˜€ Dunno how I’m gonna get to sleep now LOL.
