I currently work 4 days a week but have been offered the opportunity to go full time. I am reluctant as don't want to work full time (it's quite stressful and tiring) but this is the offering:
1 full day and 4 days school hours/ work at home. Salary 40k.
Am I being unreasonably silly to even consider turning this down? I have no perspective on what other jobs offer in terms of flexibility.

Do you live in a cave?

Err, no??? Am asking for perspective as don't know what other places offer in terms of flexibility

In your four working days now, what hours do you work?

I think that sounds a very good deal, personally.

Welshgirl2008 Tue 18-Apr-17 18:30:01

Currently 2 long days & 2 short days

I'd do all food shopping online and have it delivered while I was working from home, and I'd have a cleaner once or twice a week, too.

I work just a 4 day week school hours from home and my job has always been this - well the WFH bit. I changed from three full time days to four school hour days.

When I have "I hate work days" I remember that I can take half an hour to pop to watch the DCs school assemblies or the random Easter bonnet parade...

I would do it, but it's difficult to decide as we don't know what your job entails.

How much extra money

i don't think you'll get a more flexible offer than that. Can't really comment on the salary without knowing what the position is though.

Its a teaching role at a university

how can a teacher WFH?

Welshgirl2008 Tue 18-Apr-17 18:42:46

Because it's in higher education so different

You'd be mad to turn that down!

How can. a teacher in higher education work from home??

Moanyoldcow Tue 18-Apr-17 22:41:15

I thought I had it good! If it's a job you like you'd be mad not to take it. I often find I'm more effective at home as I have fewer interruptions.

indigox Tue 18-Apr-17 22:42:22

Is this some kind of stealth boast?

SparklyUnicornPoo Tue 18-Apr-17 22:53:34

I'd go for it without a second thought, sounds brilliant to me. I assume working from home has some element of distance learning?

What is it about it that worries you?
