I'm in abit of a tricky situation here and would be greatful if you lovely HUKD'ers could give me your opinions and advice.
Right... I have just finished contracting for a company and I am now looking for a new F/T job. Ive been out of work for 3 weeks and would like to find something asap.
A friend of mine has recently set up his own business and is looking for a Junior Admin/PA part time (15hrs pw)
Knowing that I am out of work he has offered me the job (no interview required) The job is only part time and offering 1/5th of what I used to earn. Although the industry is completely different to what I do, I am seriously considering it based on the following...
1) Guaranteed job
2) My friend is quite happy for me to look for a full time job and leave should a F/T job in my industry come up
3) It's a relatively easy admin role
4) Potential to go full time if I enjoy it and if the job requires
He had mentioned to me during the weekend how he wouldnt like to mix business with pleasure during general banter. Ive have also been close friends with him for around 25yrs. Is it really worth me taking the job knowing that these kind of situations can be awkward, proffesionally and socially?
Not quite sure what to do!
