Candidates

Accepting a Job Offer

Hearing that your application has been successful is certainly cause for celebration. However, before accepting a job it’s important to take the time to carefully evaluate the role. 

Formal Job Offer

Your first step is to obtain a formal job offer in writing and find out when your decision is required by. Consider factors of the role that may be personal and subjective to you. Assess your salary and benefits package, but also take into account aspects such as the company’s culture and personality as well as the opportunity for career progression and job security. 

Accepting the Offer

Once you’ve fully assessed the role and you’re happy to move forward it’s time to accept the offer. Show enthusiasm and emphasise that you’re looking forward to the opportunity to work for the company. Depending on the circumstances, it may be appropriate to verbally accept the offer and then follow up with a formal written letter of acceptance. 

After formally accepting a new role you’re obliged to remove yourself from job sites, inform consultancies that may have been acting for you and notify any other potential employers that may have shortlisted you. 

Resignation

Once your acceptance is formally acknowledged in writing you can notify your current employer that you’re leaving the business. Consider the terms of your employment and provide adequate notice. Most importantly, make sure that you’re leaving your current role on favourable terms as you never know how your career may develop and you may cross paths in the future.
