I recently applied for a position in my current company (UK Based). Due to lack of experience, I did not get the job and instead it went to someone else internally.
Since then (2 months later) they have determined that this person now needs an "assistant" or someone "junior". They have approached me with this job. I wanted the job originally as its an area I want to move into within my career.
However, they have stated the following:
- There will be no increase in salary (the advertised was 12k more than I get in my current role. I would not expect the full 12k since I would be entering as a junior)
- There would be no job title and no new contract.
The latter is of concern to me as I believe it could leave me vulnerable despite it being a great opportunity for experience.
I raised this with them and they said the position and title would not be assigned/given to me until they can apply for it to be included in the next yearly budget (April).
What steps/considerations/questions should I consider before giving them an answer?
