I am in the process of looking for a new job and leave my current employer, however, I'm finding that few new companies jobs want to know because I have a 3 month notice period to give. I'm therefore wondering if there is a way out of this notice period - I have no signed employment contract, only an offer by email (which I accepted in email reply). I have been here for 18 months.
Does anyone have any advice? I'm aware I could try to 'negotiate' out of this notice period, but I was just wondering if (given the email nature of the 'contract') there were some legal/statutory things in my favour that could help me?
