Dream job

I am applying for my dream job. It's ideal based on experience etc and I was wondering if people could advise on a couple of issues.

I'm currently working 3 days a week. On the allocation they have a tick box for whether you're applying for full time or job share. I would genuinely be happy to get it full time as it's so perfect but would like 3 days a week in an ideal world. I'm not sure what to tick. I was thinking of selecting full time but putting in the application that I would be happy to be considered full time or as a job share. Don't want to seem wooly.

Also the closing date is 26th may so presumably they'll be interviewing from then. I'm on holiday for 2 weeks abroad from 24th may. I'm not going to say anything unless I get offered an interview but wondered if that could scupper my chances.

What do people think?

It's quite niche and I really do have everything they're asking for so cautiously optimistic but don't want logistics to ruin it!

All other interviews I've had I've been headhunter for so I'm used to having a recruiter to ask!
Thank you!

I would do exactly as you say and tick full time but add that you would consider job share.
With regards to the interview, I would call them and ask when the interviews are, you can then explain about the holiday and ask if you would be able to be interviewed another time should you get to that point.
Good luck
