A recruiter from a high-profile company that I'd like to work for has reached out to me on LinkedIn.
The trouble is I'm going on maternity leave in September and it's probably not a good time to start a new role. My current company also offers maternity leave income top-ups as a benefit so it'd be foolish for me to leave right now.
I don't want to put the recruiter off but it looks like now is not the time to start a new role.
Here's what I have so far:
Thanks for reaching out.
I certainly am interested in talking about opportunities at xyz company. I should probably let you know that I'm going on maternity leave in September. I'm due to return to work next March.
