Just seeking advice regarding a three-month notice period.
I’m a Senior Payroll & Auto Enrolment Specialist with 5.5 years experience of managing back-to-back Payroll processing journey for over 1000 SMEs. This includes processing, calculations, queries, leading the team and delegating work. Although I dislike the job I am proud of what I have achieved: maintained continuity of service and completed various technical projects.
I’m now seeking a new Payroll job opportunity with better salary and greater personal development. I’ve been advised by recruiters when applying for jobs this is a high / unusual notice period and I should negotiate a reduction – highly unlikely given the attitude of my employer and my standing in the organisation.
Given the current economic climate, what would you do? Hand my notice in and use the three months to secure perm role as the notice period expires I become more attractive to employers?
Take a temp role in interim?
Negotiate a notice-period reduction with my employer and use the time to find something else prior to handing my notice in?
What would you do?
