Job offer

  1. Hi everyone,

    I have received two written job offers.
    The first is a permanent full-time and the second a relief full-time
    job offer.
    What confuses me is that I always thought that a relief position is
    terminated to the return of the incumbent.
    But this relief job offer isn`t terminated?

    What do you think, is this maybe a mistake or does relief not automatically
    mean to be a terminated position?

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Did you ask the manager who sent you the job offer?

    You need to ask the employer for clarification.

    Yes, I have sent an e-mail asking for clarification, but havn`t
    received an answer until now.
    Two days left to decide which job to take and the relief
    full time job offer is the more interesting and challenging
    I would have called the nursing manager, but she was
    available at the office only late in the afternoon and I am
    currently in Germany 9 hours forward.

    Hi Mona77,

    How are you?
    I have the same question about relief full time. So how does it work? Is the position terminated upon the return of the incumbent? And what about the benefits? Do you have a full time benefit?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Hi iheartcanucks2012,

    I chose the relief full time position and the position was terminated to the return of
    the incumbent - but in my case the incumbent was on maternity leave moving down South
    to Vancouver (I am in the Northwest of BC).
    But even before she resigned another 2 permanent positions opened, so after 3 months I was successful in applying for a permanent full time position.
    It worked out for me - wish you the best!
