I have been offered a job, but no start date yet. I'm confirmed to go away in November to volunteer assisting children in South America for two weeks (helping to build homes etc) but during my interviews the mention of holidays etc never came up and I was thinking I wouldn't get through all stages of the interview process - it was very competitive!
Now I'm not sure what to tell the employer/will they retract the offer? Will they see it as holidays? The company is very community minded and encourage volunteering among its employees.
