A recruiter is advertising a role, and I can tell from the description that it is a previous employer of mine. This is an employer that "let me go" in the past.
It's a consultant position, so I would be going in on behalf on my own limited liability company. It would be paid each day that I work.
The role itself is within a department that I previously worked and know well. That department was my first position in that company, I moved around the company three times after that. I was there for around 5 years.
The specific role the recruiter is looking to fill is within 'xyz' area. I had some involvement with 'xyz' when I was working there, but at a junior level. Now, I am a freelancer consultant mostly specialising in 'xyz' and similar areas, having helped other clients improve their 'xyz' processes quite successfully.
I was let go by this company following a year of absence due to serious health problems. I didn't appeal the termination at the time.
My health issues are now being successfully treated, and I am no longer affected by them to the extent that I am unable to work.
Would it be unwise to submit my CV to the agency regarding this role, given my history with the company? They are looking for somebody available within 2 weeks, and I will be available by then.
I feel like I would be able to pick up the role quicker than any other candidate, (I worked with large chunks of it in the past). But, I feel a bit ridiculous even asking, maybe that's justified?
