I'm currently in a situation where the job I was hired for has no full days worth of work for me to complete. I feel like I am expendable in my role.
The following has arisen since I have started.
- the team leader that hired me, has left and the team knew about this prior to me starting for about 10 weeks
- I have been there for 5 weeks starting next week, they still have no clients for me to chase and take ownership off
- there is no training plan in place for what I should be achieving as the acting team leader is busy doing her own role.
- I have been proactive asking people and team leaders for work. I have spoken to the manager and he eventually asked other people in the team for work and they almost had argument for giving me work as the team members don't want me to contact their clients.
I'm in a position where the work that eventually be out into my pipeline will become boring and my motivation asking for work is just waning. I'm at the point of I don't care if I get any work, I just want to leave, but not until I have secured another opportunity.
Would it be bad practice to ask the internal recruiter that was handling mr appointment for other roles?
