I left my previous job of 8 years due to a horrid new line manager. I quite enjoyed my job and was good at it however I could not continue working with my line manager. I waited until something else suitable came along and left.
Now six months down the line I'm not sure I'm cut out for this new job. It's a complete career change and I can't see me staying in the job forever, it's very target driven. I can do the job and I don't like the whole targets/deadline culture.
My colleagues are fine, my line manager is chaotic and very much focused on his targets and to be honest not that great.
My current job is very flexible re childcare and the school run which is perfect for our current situation(dh works away a lot so I am the main carer for dc).
I have seen another job that is similar to my previous job which I am considering applying for but would it look bad if I left my current job after six months? I do have connections with the potential new employer so maybe a foot in the door so to speak.
DH is supportive but wouldn't want me to leave without having another job to go to.
