Our holidays run from Jan to Dec, you get 2 days per full calendar month worked. So if I work until end of march I have 6 days to take.

Also bear in mind I have Feb half term off, about 5.5 days. That has been approved.

With this place, it's best I tell them when I'm going rather than open up the discussion as they will prob take the Michael. Give them a finger they'll take the arm!

Congratulations

First of all if you are going to a rival company or a competitor be aware that you may be asked to leave in the spot, you would be entitled to the full notice period paid however I would also suggest talking to you future employer to see if you can start any earlier if needed.

If that isn't the case and they don't want you until the end of March don't hand in your notice until the 24th as stated previously. The reason for this is that technically they could ask you to leave 2 months after you hand your notice in and then you could be stuck for a few weeks.

Fyi I haven't got anything yet, not even a verbal offer, but they said they would get back to me this week as they needed some sort of approval and the relevant people were out of the office at the back end of December.

Thanks for all the info chaps.

Sorry man but do not get too excited about the job, as of this post when you hand you resignation letter must be the least of your worries.

Just had a call to say they've made an offer which I have verbally accepted, they are starting the paperwork and contract should be here this week hopefully.

They need to me to provide two references.

Anticipated start date is 9th April 2018.

Would the two references be my current employer and the one previous one?

Well done fella!

My industry (finance) is a bit weird about references so I canít answer that one! Sounds reasonable though

Whoever you name - probably a good idea to give them a heads up that a call is coming.

Till you have a contract on your hands assume that you do not have a job offer.

Congrats that is good news, make sure that you give your notice at the date09/04/2018 - notice period.

References need to be from two people that you trust and have worked with.

Employers references are a waste as they are a standard format that says virtually nothing and none pays any attention too.

Do not ask for employer's reference till you had the contract signed.

Thing is, if I sign the contract and supply two people for reference, surely they will know before I hand my notice in and hence the word might spread before I tell my boss?

Previously I have just put the HR Department of the current and previous company I have worked for as the two referees - reading the replies I guess this is a no no.
