hi all, I need to know what to do in this situation. I went for an interview exactly 3 Fridays ago today. In the interview the Head warned me that they had some candidates who couldn’t make it on the day (we found out about the interview at 5:20pm the previous day so not surprising) therefore she might not be able to get back to me until the following Tuesday. Not ideal but I said fair enough. Well, two whole weeks have passed and I still haven’t been told if I’ve been offered the role or not. There were 2 out of 3 candidates left after the lesson round but 4 vacancies to fill. Also, I worked here before for two years a couple of years ago. After that Tuesday passed I emailed a letter she’d requested and she replied apologising for the delay explaining they were still interviewing and that she should have a decision by the end of that Friday (last Friday). No phone call. Follow up communications sent this week: 1. I sent an email to check all was well on Monday. 2. left a phone message on Tuesday with reception who were told she was off site for a meeting 3. Phoned but got no answer on Wednesday. 4. On a Thursday left a voicemail message with the School Business Manager who had contacted me about the interview and a message for the Head with reception who again were told that she was attending an off site meeting 5. Today Friday I sent an email to the Head’s inbox There is a dearth of suitable job vacancies within travelling distance in my area so it’s not like I can ignore this and get a job elsewhere. With each message I have been as courteous and kind as possible but surely being ignored for two weeks when I was promised a decision 2 Tuesdays ago then again last Friday is pure rudeness, is it not? How shall I move forwards on this? I was genuinely impressed with this Headteacher and all she has done for that school. My nerves have been utterly shredded with the uncertainty of my future. Context Info: Me: 19 years teaching experience, inner city secondary core subject, UPS1, current contract is temporary and can’t be renewed. School I interviewed for judged as Requires Improvement over the last 2 OFSTEDs and has struggled to recruit and retain for years.
