Hi everyone, I have recently been offered a long-term placement which is part time (not really enough for me to live on) - I accepted as I need some kind of financial stability in the face of being newly out of a 2 year full time contract. I have seen a permanent job I want to apply for but I feel bad on the school I have taken the long term assignment through. I need the stability - I live alone and already am working half terms in another job to maintain some income. In addition, the summer is the worst time so even if I work up until then what am I meant to do for 6 weeks? I feel guilty wanting to have a permanent role and think maybe I shouldn't have taken this on as parents will expect me to be there to maintain continuity. However, having a permanent role is what I'm really aiming for. Please help, would it be so bad for me to apply for the perm role?
