Hello, I was appointed to a position to start in January 2016. Unfortunately, in the intervening time things have changed dramatically and it looks as if a move is in order. This move is flexible to a point so I am wondering if it is more professional to start and resign, working the spring term, or whether Heads would prefer me to be honest and have the chance to appoint somebody who can give the job their all and stay there many years. I suspect the latter. Or should I just ask? Thank you.
