Dear Theo I am looking at a vacancy with a view to applying, however it is a full time post and I only want to work part time. I work in a shortage subject in an inner city school and the potential new position is a similar situation. My current role is part time. Would I be best to contact the school before hand to see if they would accept a part time position or to apply as normal and then mention it if they offer me the job? I don't want to mess anyone around but at the same time would like to opportunity to show what I could do. Any thoughts? Thanks!
