I’ve just been offered a place on a graduate scheme at a firm offering quite a large golden hello. The problem is that this isn’t the best firm, and if I accept the job I’m still going to be applying to other firms for their grad schemes.
If I accept the golden hello, can I still leave the company if I get a better offer? Would there be a minimum amount fo time I would have to stay at the company to get my golden hello? Would I have to pay back the golden hello if I left early? …basically, what are the conditions that are usually attached to a golden hello? I don’t expect I can turn up for one day, snatch the GH and then leave… but if I get a better offer I can’t stay at this firm because they just aren’t good. I’m only considering accepting their offer because I need to get something I have been unlucky elsewhere.
