Looking for views on my situation.\nFollowing end of furlough, I was entered into a redundancy consultation and opted for voluntary redundancy.\n\nThrough personal contacts I have a job offer on the table which I am so pleased about.\n\nThere has been discussion about the salary. They asked me what my salary expectation was. The figure I said was higher than the job I just left.\n\nThey said they couldn't offer as high as that. The figure they can offer is still more than my old job and one I would be happy to accept.\n\nJust wondering how that might reflect on me if I took the job? Would they think I have sold myself short or that I have compromised? \n\nNot gone through a recruiter so there is no one else to be a buffer between me and employer.
