Q. I have recently been told I’m going to be made redundant form my job in six months’ time. However, a job has become available in another company close to where I live but the catch is that it has a significantly lower salary. Do I go for this job even though the salary is dramatically inferior or do I sit tight for the time being? Any suggestions as to what I should do? (LL, email.)

Q: I have been working as office manager in a company for the past three months – without actually getting the stripes. The situation was that the previous office manager took ill and they recruited me on a temporary basis to take over the job. Initially, there was some resentment among the other three people in the office – at least two of whom might have felt they should have got the job. But that has now dissipated and we have a happy working environment. One of the two even confided in me that he was glad I had come in as he didn’t feel he would be able to do the job as good I can. Anyway, that’s not my reason for writing to you. What’s bugging me now is that the job is now to be filled on a full-time basis. I had hoped I would get the job without it being advertised, but it has been advertised locally in the media. What should I do? Does this mean they don’t think my face fits? (RK, email)
