I have been in my current role for 4 months (working remotely), and am currently on a 6-month probation. The role involves far more web development than I was expecting, rather than the other areas I was interested in when I read the job description.
I have recently brought this up with my manager and discussed where my strengths and passions are, but he explained that web development is the core focus of the role. For me to succeed in the role, I will need to devote a large amount of work time to learning front-end development, which I really don't enjoy and is not my strength. The team I work in is very supportive of me learning this, and are providing me support and resources. However, I'm stressed and unhappy as I'm not heading in the career direction I was expecting.
I've met my team in person a couple of times, and I really enjoy working with them. I also really value their support and would ideally like to stay within the team.
Could I resign from this role during my probation? As my strengths directly relate to the needs of the team, how could I ask if I could be better suited to another role?
