Dear @TheoGriff This might sound like an odd question, and sorry if it's in the wrong place. I've just found out today that I've been offered an interview next week, on Tuesday. The problem being that today and this week is half term, so I have no way of firstly telling my head that I have an interview next week in person (I did not tell him beforehand as references were only going to be requested after interview, so didn't want to alarm him that I was looking elsewhere in case I wasn't offered an interview). I obviously don't want to leave it until next Monday, asking for the next day off for an interview. Is it ok to email him/his PA requesting the day off, and letting him know why I'm applying? I don't want to sound unprofessional, or that I'm looking to move, but this is a good opportunity for me to move to a different environment. Thanks in advance!
