Day off within first week of new job


I’ve just been offered a new job and I start in 6 weeks. I had no idea my start date would be so far away and I have a trip booked the first weekend after I start. My problem is I need to take that Friday off as my flight is in the afternoon. I’ve no direct contact with my new manager yet so am nervous about asking for a day off on my first week!


Contact the HR team and explain your situation. Be truthful and they will understand your situation, I’m sure.
