Has anyone got an interview with SCE in the Falklands yet?
Well it looks like it's just me then!
If you are being interviewed near Monchengladbach is it easier to fly to Dusseldorf or Weeze?
Are there any other airports nearby?
Also, has anyone had a Head that has been difficult about travel and interviews? I think mine might be!
I had a head that said I had no right to have time off for an interview. I ended up getting a sick note for a couple of days so I could go.
Dusseldorf is easy - they actually send a driver for you. You could also consider ryanair (yuk!!) into what I call RAF Laarbruck but they call either Dusseldorf or Koln (can't remember which though)
Thanks for your help Now I just need a winning lesson and for my knees to stop knocking!
I'm very excited!
Good luck Boffin_not! The Falkland Islands are amazing!
With my shaky glass half full, thinking past the interview, how does relocation work when you have children that are no longer regarded as dependents? I have two that are teenagers and not in education now, but live at home and are supported by my husband and I.
Although I often feel like giving them a cardboard box and a £10, I'm not ready to abandon them (after all they might choose my care home!).
I'm in exactly the same position! My 5 bedroomed house in the UK is solely occupied by my 21yo son who is a student, ha! Whilst I live in a 2 bed apartment, go figure! In fact it works well as we don't have to pay extra for insurance, the council tax is in his name so single person discount (if working and not a student) or zero council tax if a student (degree). Financial support continues, it is just the emotional support that is difficult but my son manages very well. I pay the utilities and he buys his own food, does his own washing and sort of keeps the house clean!!
They adjust pretty easily!
Lovely.lady I've just sent you a PM
