I didn't know that this year has Kenneth's last (no mention during the race week this year), but I do know that John Lunt (ex-Human Race, London 2012 RD) was co-race director this year, so I assume that was the handover.

Understand that you have a holiday booked? I've never known any employer see that as an issue. When I'm recruiting, if I find the right person and they have a holiday pre-booked, even if it's the worst possible time of the year for our business, I'm unlikely to want to miss out on them given it'll be a one-off.

I agree with Stenard - make sure your new employer knows about your booked holiday as soon as possible, but I can't see it being an issue or even a surprise for a new employer if you just want to take a week or so for a trip to Lanza.

It would obviously be a different story if you were planning on taking 3 months out to trek around South America Wink

I guess the only other issue might be if the new firm has a leave policy that only lets you take paid leave after you've accrued it.

Good luck with the job hunting. Enjoy the wind-down over the 90 day notice period and the extra training time during any gap between jobs Wink

I've heard of this. My mum's partners old employer enforced this. I have to admit I don't get it. It surely means you can't take off your final day(s) of holiday until the final month of the holiday year, as you'll only accrue it in that month? Seems really rather weird.

Unless they don't have the concept of a holiday year, and you just have a rolling allowance of accrued holiday? I've never worked anywhere like that, other than part-time bar work back when I was a student.

Surely you'd only mention it once you'd been offered the job? I don't think it's customary (or indeed necessary) to drop your leave/holiday plans into interviews or any selection process; you can't ask a female if they plan to have a baby, and that takes-up more than a few days off.
