Job not what was advertised

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by lovebooks, Jun 1, 2011.

  1. I applied for a job where the advertisement stated vacancies for 6 full time teachers. I went for interview and the next day was offered a post which I accepted.
    I moved my family across the country to take up the post. Six weeks into the job I have yet to sign a contract but have since found out that the position I have is a one year temporary contract.
    I have spoken to the head and made clear that this was not mentioned in the interview, or when I was offered the job and as such I feel that the job I accepted was not what was advertised.
    Where do I stand? I have yet to sign a contract but I am aware that simply being at work constitutes a contract, and I feel very let down by it all.
    I would never have applied for a job that was temporary, and certainly never accepted a temporary post when I already had a permanent position. What would you suggest I do? Should I fight for a permanent post and appear to be awkward, or should I say that as they cannot offer me a permanent post I will be starting to look for permanent employment elsewhere? Should I talk to my union?
    Any advice welcome!
