How can one go about asking for sometime to consider it? This is something I would NEVER do for a uk post. This is an overseas post and I was not asked in interview if I was still a firm candidate. I AM still a firm candidate but if offered the post I would need to have those last discussions with my dependants and other half before saying yes, it has to be right for all. How do I phrase 'can I consider it and come back to you?' I shall also post this in overseas.
