(England) Reneging (conditional) graduate job offer after signing contract

2023.05.03 18:13 Traditional-Nerve-53 (England) Reneging (conditional) graduate job offer after signing contract

Hello, everyone.
I am in my final year of a Bachelor degree, from which I will graduate in June/July this year. In November 2022, I was made an offer for a graduate job starting September 2023 which I was happy with. Thus I accepted it and signed the contract. This offer is conditional on me getting at least a 2:1 grade in my degree.
Since that point, I applied to and was accepted into a Masters degree programme starting in October 2023. This offer is conditional on me getting a 1st class grade in my degree (higher than the condition for the graduate job offer). I am very keen on taking this degree over the graduate role, so I have accepted this offer.
My concern now is to do with reneging the graduate job offer. Of course, I don't have my final Bachelor degree grades confirmed yet, so it's still possible that I end up getting just a 2:1 — in which case the only offer I would fulfil would be the graduate role, which I would go on to taking. I will learn this outcome sometime during or just before July. Thus it's in my interest to delay (potentially) reneging the graduate role offer until only then.
My graduate role employment contract mentions that the notice period for contract termination by either party during the probationary period (which lasts at least 6 months from the start of employment) is just a week, but it otherwise does not go into contract termination before employment even begins. In my mind, if, in July, I find that I indeed obtained a 1st class grade in my current degree — meaning that I can take the Masters offer — and I renege the graduate job offer I will, in effect, be terminating the contract with much more notice than a week, which would fall within the procedures outline in the employment contract. However, this page leads me to believe that, even given that "notice period" before employment begins, I might be in breach of contract, which might lead to the employer suing me. Obviously this wouldn't be ideal, but I haven't found any more credible information online on a situation such as this one.
Any help I can get on this matter would be much appreciated.

2023.02.05 00:55 read_r Anyone else find the job advice on career websites a bit odd sometimes?

For example, on Target Jobs it says you shouldn't back out of a job if you've already accepted it and if you get a better offer. But I thought this was something people did - graduate jobs are really competitive and recruit months apart so if you followed that advice you'd basically be forced to work at the first place that gave you an offer. Because you can't decline it and risk not getting any other offers.
Also there was another career website giving advice about graduate jobs basically saying you should be happy with a £20k salary.

2021.10.26 09:35 ingstad Is there any "dictionary" of modern occupational titles?

I'm new to recruitment and I have some kind of difficulty understanding engineering, finance and IT jobs. I was wondering if there is any list of their job descriptions without being overly technical. Or even a hierarchy of these jobs in their departament.
I had some luck with TargetJobs or MyMajors.

2021.10.06 18:37 moneyintrend 10 jobs that make money while traveling

10 jobs that make money while traveling
The ambition of any traveler is to find a profession that permits them to travel for as long as possible. Some may be obvious, but many are certainly new to you.
Jobs in travel and tourism are not exhaustive, but they are an excellent start. Click on the job title for further info:

1. AuthoPhotographer
This may or may not imply travel writer. If you were a banker, why not start writing for financial magazines and journals? You don't have to write about travel to achieve this goal.
The Matador Creators Community is a fantastic place to network with peers and editors, as well as locate opportunities for travel journalists.

2 . Travel Agency

Because travel agents act as a liaison between passengers and hotels, airlines, and tourism agencies, they must be well-versed in the products they promote. Most travel companies prefer training from a vocational or technical school, a community college, or a university.

3. Tour Guide
Someone who has realized that “home” isn't always where they were born will like this profession. What better way to earn a living than by sharing your passion with others?
Wannabe tour guides can apply for job with a local tour business. While fluency in the native language is often required, knowing English might be useful since many of your clients will be. Freelance guides are another possibility, especially if you have a specialist area like local food or outdoor activities.

4. Flight attendants
Cabin crew salaries vary widely depending on the airline and expertise, although they often start above minimum pay. You'll have fewer options as a beginner in terms of schedule, flying hours, and locations.
The good news is that if you're above 21, not too short or tall, and have no criminal record, you're generally fine to go. Some airlines desire but are not obliged to have a degree.

5. Pilot
Less travel means more training. For example, the BLS reports that 34% of pilots are employed “dusting crops, spreading seed for reforestation, testing airplanes, flying passengers and cargo to areas not served by regular airlines, directing firefighting efforts, tracking criminals and monitoring traffic.”
Most airlines prefer college graduates, and obtaining a license requires at least 250 hours of flight time. Physically, the candidate must have great eyesight (with or without corrective glasses), excellent hearing, and no physical disabilities that may hinder performance.

6. Import/export

This one may be tricky, as there's a thin line between legal and criminal in the industry. When I lived in Brazil, airport security was quite strict about outsiders bringing in gadgets, especially Apple devices, which are extremely costly in the nation and may be sold to locals for a profit. Buying something in one nation and selling it to a friend in another for a profit isn't precisely how it works.
Become an agent if you want a legitimate job. Most domestic producers want overseas distribution; agencies generally take 10%. This is a travel job for someone with marketing expertise or desire.

7. Host/hostess:

Honestly, it isn't always a euphemism. It doesn't have to be sex or a certain sort of "massage." You work at a bar and woo the patrons. You get them to buy beverages. And you do it. Maybe you join them. And you make a tidy sum.
The drawbacks are clear.

8. Interpreter
An interpreter works with spoken languages, whereas a translator works with written languages. Your company may demand a bachelor's degree or higher, and it helps if it is in languages. You can also freelance. The most significant requirement is fluency in two languages.
Start looking for translation and interpreting jobs with government entities. Other choices include non-profits, hospitals, and events with foreign competitors or attendees.

9. Airline reserve agent

This job pays minimum salary yet allows for travel. You'll help with tickets and passenger responsibilities include upgrading, addressing complaints, moving bags, and paperwork.
Requirements: age 18, high school graduation or GED, driver's license, and (usually) excellent typing abilities.

10. Poker player
My old ESL co-teacher just moved to Thailand. I saw his beach house on Facebook and thought, “Wow, he must have gotten a wonderful teaching gig.”
He quit the ESL rat race to play online poker and is winning. Obviously, this is a freelance work; the only criterion is that you win 50% of the time. It's possible to earn a lot of money and go anyplace you want, but it'll be difficult to put on a resume if you ever find a "real" job or Try this "Making money with Apps - Earn from everywhere"

2020.12.08 01:54 l33fty Interview help!?

Ahoy! I recently landed my first round pf interviews for an ETL of Merchandising and Operations role. I was wondering if you fine folks would have any sage advice/words of wisdom? I have been studying for the phone interview for the last week. Getting answers ready and structured in the STAR format has been fun. But Ive also watched a few of the TARGETjobs videos and read the ETL interview guide on Kindle, WHICH were an even greater help and reference. But, as i scroll through the subreddit here i am noticing that i am still feeling slightly unprepared. Anything i should look out for? Any buzz words i should emphasize or qualities i should whole heartedly avoid?
Thank you in advance. This is a high volume store in the south metro of my area. I have 8 years as a district sales manager and over 10 years of experience in retail management, but i feel like target is the big leagues. Kind of intimidating. Kind of(;',

2019.12.06 22:40 vtjfvkc1 Why is the graduate job market so depressed?

Lived in Sheffield for the last decade & absolutely loved it. Would've loved nothing more than to establish permanent roots here. Unfortunately, during my search for a job in my final year of university, it became abundantly clear that I'd struggle to find a graduate role here. For reference, only five of top 300 graduate employers offered roles in Sheffield. We had six, but PwC - a firm that maintains an office in practically every backwater in the Western world - left around eighteen months ago. (I didn't include the public sector organisations, as those roles are rotational [barring the police scheme].) Smaller cities have much more in the way of opportunities for graduates. Any ideas as to why? You'd think that a large city with two universities would have more to offer. Sheffield doesn't seem to be doing a great job of attracting corporates. The city's Channel 4 bid was all but laughed out of the room.
I've now moved to the Midlands for work & it really does pale in comparison to beautiful Sheffield. :(

2019.11.01 19:22 elexando Tips for getting a job in the UK, and useful web links

So I've been reading some of the posts here and thought maybe a basic guide might help.
If you're looking for details on what job websites to use, what recruitment agencies are out there, what Brexit means for finding a job from abroad, etc, this might help you.
This might be written slightly from the perspective of a a foreign jobseeker, as my past experience has been mostly in helping non EU nationals in the UK with the job market.
This is definitely a very simple discussion of the general stuff, though. Obviously this sub deals with a lot of other more complex, industry-specific queries.
Would really appreciate any feedback or any suggestions for what to add/remove/change.

Working in the UK

Best websites to read

Before you read this guide, you should know there are excellent guides for the UK job market at, which covers job hunting, apprenticeships, job offers, holiday/sick regulations, rules on redundancies, pensions, contracts, hours, tax, and workplace rights. It’s very comprehensive.
The Department for Work and Pensions have an official job listing website which will resemble much of what is available at Job Centres in major UK towns and cities. You need to sign up for an account, on
When contacting any employer or agency, you should avoid paying money for applications, fees, visas, interviews, etc. If you are asked to pay, this might be a sign that the business is a scam.
The best job websites are
Recruitment agencies. You may find these are the best for getting a job quickly, or getting a temporary/part time role. Many agencies will exclusively work on the hospitality industry, construction, events, executive roles, sales, etc. Agencies include:
You can sometimes have more success getting a job if it is not advertised widely. You may find some roles are posted informally on Twitter, Facebook, or on the company’s own website.
Some companies accept speculative job applications, however you should only do this if you know you are suitable for a particular role at the company, and know that the business is likely to be hiring. You may wish to make contact with an employee with mutual connections first before doing this.


Employers in the UK will almost always want a CV.
Make sure you include:
  1. A contact email
  2. Permanent address (best if you can provide a UK address)
  3. Mobile number (again best to give a UK number)
  4. Introduction (giving a quick overview of your most recent employment and education, as well as some key skills and specialisms you offer. If you have a gap in your employment history, explain that briefly here.
  5. Employment history, but leave out summestudent jobs once you leave education.
  6. Education history. Give your degree result, unless it is lower than a 2:2 (close to a fail).
  7. Achievements - this is good for mentioning any volunteering work, sporting achievements, or promotions.
  8. Interests - this could be extra curricular activities, preferably if they are relevant to the role you are applying for.
  9. References (sometimes called referees). These are usually 1-2 recent employers, preferably based in the UK. Occasionally, employers will want a personal reference, but this is typically someone independent and not in your immediate family.
  10. The contact details for your references. State on the CV if you only want the employer to contact them after an interview, for example if the reference is your current manager. You can also leave out contact details if you are sharing your CV publically, for example on social media or LinkedIn.
They may also ask for a cover letter. This tends to involve explaining how your experience and achievements meet the job specification. For example, if the job listing states you need to have confidence speaking to large groups of people, you would write a sentence to explain how you used to give presentations to the company’s board every quarter, or so on.


In the UK, networking opportunities are best developed in person at events, conferences, or lunches.
For young people these are typically at the Universities, who will hold job fairs, employer sponsored activities, and through the University’s Careers Department.
If you aren’t in higher education, you can still network at Young Professional events, local business events, and at job fairs.
There are also lots of professional organisations depending on your discipline. For example, civil engineers can become members of the Institution of Civil Engineers, or marketing professionals can join the Charterted Insitute of Marketing. Often this is only where you have a masters degree providing you chartered status.
If you are applying from outside the UK, you should try to make use of any connections you may have in the UK. If you have family or friends who run a business, or know a local business that is hiring, they will be able to support you better than if you are coming alone.
Many in the UK now use LinkedIn to build up a professional profile. This can be good for showing future employers your work and performance. You may wish to ‘connect’ with people in your industry, ideally those who you have met at networking events. If you have not met, you can send messages to people asking to connect because you wish to expand your professional network and build new connections. You may wish to make posts on LinkedIn about what you are working on, or on your experiences of working in your industry. This is a good chance to show others what you can do and promote your skills.

Seasonal work and temporary jobs

Many jobs in the UK, like the rest of the world, are increasingly temporary and may not give regular hours. These are often described as “zero hours contacts” though some jobs may be based on other contract types.
You should make sure any contract you sign complies with employment regulations including the European Working Time Directive.


Employers are highly reluctant to consider applicants who are not near to the office/business advertised. If you have a UK or valid international drivers licence and a vehicle, your chances will be significantly better. Some areas of the UK are better connected by public transport than others.
If you are applying for a job in your area, make it clear to the employer that you have a UK number, address, and references in the nearby area.
If you are applying from abroad, you may be successful applying from your home country, but you will find it much easier to secure an interview if you have a UK address and phone number. If you do not, having a relative’s address you can rely on may improve your chances.
Some areas of the UK have specialisms in certain industries, and some areas have better job opportunities than others. However I can't really advise of these other than to say the London area is a centre for technology and finance jobs. Cambridge is growing as a life sciences centre.

Regional industries

Agriculture, and temporary farm work, is prolific in the east of England and the South East.
The midlands is a (recently declining) centre for manufacturing businesses.
Leeds (Yorkshire) is the UK's 2nd largest financial and legal sector, and the largest e-business sector.
Aberdeen and much of the north east coast is supported by the North Sea oil industry.
Scotland is also more widely focussed on fishing and has specialisms in the drinks business including Whiskey.
The most popular tourist destinations (for hospitality and cultural industries) are in order:
  1. London
  2. Edinburgh
  3. Manchester
  4. Birmingham
  5. Glasgow
  6. Liverpool
  7. Bristol
For sporting events, Manchester, London, Glasgow, Cardiff, and Edinburgh are important.
Political jobs are typically in the capital cities: London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, and Belfast.
The education sector is dominated by "Oxbridge", the two major international Universities of Cambridge and Oxford. As a result they also have specialisms in high skilled business due to the graduates in both towns.
Other high ranking Universities are those in the "Russell Group" (a UK version of the Ivy League) which include
The exception to that group is the University of St Andrews which chooses not to participate in the group but was recently ranked 2nd in the UK.


Interviews in the UK can vary widely. Some interviews are as short as 15 to 30 minutes, and may only involve speaking to one or two members of staff in a small room.
Some companies will ask for longer recruitment methods, such as 2 or 3 hour sessions. These can include assessing you on performance at group tasks, written assessments, technical assessments e.g. coding, or they may have multiple interviews with different people in the company.
Some companies will ask you to come back for a second interview before taking a role.
It is uncommon for employers to pay travel expenses for interviews for low skilled jobs. For more senior jobs, this may be possible.
For almost all interviews in the UK, you will want to wear smart formal clothing. Roles at more liberal companies such as tech firms, or jobs for construction companies, outdoor jobs, or agency roles.
Smart clothing for men typically involves smart leather shoes, socks, suit trousers, a clean long sleeve shirt, either a jumper or suit jacket, and a tie (although these are becoming less popular).
Some companies may wish interviewees to be clean shaven, though many workplaces are now supportive of those with beards or long hair.


Brexit is an incredibly complicated topic and your best advice would be to go to an employment lawyer or citizens advice office.
The UK has not yet left the European Union but is scheduled to do so. This may not happen, depending on political events. If the UK leaves, it is likely to continue to follow European rules and regulations until 2020 or even 2021. Any deal after that may continue to follow European rules or it may diverge.
Target Jobs have written about the general risks of Brexit to the UK job market here:
If you are an EU citizen in the UK, your employment will continue after a no deal Brexit. However EU citizens are being advised to obtain “settled status” to remain indefinitely in the UK. EU citizens looking to move to the UK after Brexit takes place will not be eligible for obtaining settled status, and will instead need to follow the new rules for obtaining a visa and/or right to remain, which will be negotiated by 2020/2021.
Non EU citizens need a work visa and will have the same rules about working in the UK for the near future.

If you’ve read this far, and still have a question, Reddit might be able to help.
That said, you may want to try to ask someone in your industry or in the area you are looking for a job first, as they will have good experience of the situation. Likewise, University careers departments, Job Centres, careers centres, and the National Careers Service ( will also be able to help you.

Any corrections or additions anyone wishes to make to this post are definitely welcome.

2017.04.20 00:02 Dog-Plops A few quick career questions

I graduated in 2013 with a MSci. After 2 years of inactivity (due to ill health) and 1 year at an entry-level office position (current role), I'm now finally looking into applying for graduate schemes. However, a few questions/anxious thoughts are bugging me :-
  1. Would it be considered too late for me to apply for graduate schemes? Are they usually for those recently graduated or are they called 'graduate' schemes because you need to be a graduate (full stop and never completed one previously?)
  2. If I'm not too late, I'm a at a disadvantage considering the 4 year difference or should that not have any weighting
  3. What is the best way to keep in the loop for graduate schemes (is it still targetjobs and milkround, or has it changed since I was at uni)?
  4. References: I'm finding it really hard getting/retaing them. How do you do it? Assuming you have one from a current position, would you just have to keep volunteering to maintain a 2nd?
  5. Are graduate schemes worth it / what they're made out to be? I should have put this at no. 1 but editing it and reformatting it would be too much trouble. From memory, they were all legal or accountancy firms but maybe that's must my confirmation bias.
Apologies if those questions are pretty obvious. I didn't make the most of the career's advice section at uni and hedged my bets in getting a job related to my degree (lab-work), which I grew to dislike in the end.
Appreciate anyone's input.

2017.03.02 12:33 TinCanLizard [Civil][UK] Going into industry after PhD

I am asking this question since google offered little advice apart from this.
My background: In 2015 I graduated with a 1st class civil engineering MEng. My supervisor offered me a PhD and I accepted since the topic and funding was attractive to me. The research is risk and reliability analysis of heterogeneous materials using Bayesian random field theory. I feel I have gained strong skills in statistical methods and reliability analysis. In 2018 I will graduate and want to work in industry as a structural engineer. I have no industrial experience.
My question: Should I try to get value out of my PhD by finding a company that values it (more of a specialist/analytical role)? OR should I accept that a PhD is not valued by industry and apply to engineering graduate schemes as a normal MEng candidate?
I appreciate any comments you can give.

2016.04.28 21:17 redditsyderaccount Getting a work placement?

So I googled it and found this:
Since I'm a Canadian it says that I'd be eligible to do a work placement. I can't decide on Bath or Manchester to study their compsci course with a year in industry, but what's important is that there would be the option of doing so (maybe I can even get a year long placement in Canada..not sure).
Does anyone know if the employers would discriminate you if you didn't have a UK passport? Even though you'd be eligible to work full time in the UK during your 3rd year (placement year).

2014.04.09 12:13 heteromox UK Doctors' Salaries and a few comparisons

It takes average 5 years to get the basic medical qualification in the UK ((MBBS, BM BCh or MB ChB), followed by a compulsory 2 year Foundation Programme. Starting salary for most FY1 hospital doctors is £22,636.
The first 4 years tuition fees and living costs for people studying medicine at undergraduate level are not supported by a bursary scheme as it is for nurses and other allied health professionals. Medical students will run up debt through the student loans scheme from Student Finance England for maintenance and tuition fees in the first four years.
On average it takes about 10 years training to become a GP, and 14 years to become a surgeon. The average pre-tax pay for a NHS hospital doctor, 5 years post-degree, so usually in their early 30s, is £40,000 ($65,000). This equates to take-home pay of approximately £30,000 ($50,000).
The UK Prime Minister earns £142,000 gross.....
Other comparisons of starting salaries: UK Solicitors (average 3 years university and 1 year professional training, followed by 2 years compulsory salaried training contract)
UK Corporate Bankers (average 3 years university)
