Title, coworker is leaving in less than two months, this fact was of course dropped on me less than two weeks before my professional exam.
The guy just had a baby, which is why I’m worried. They’re doing some internal restructuring and filling some senior positions and letting more junior roles’ contracts run out. I am honestly really scared as I have two years left on my trainee contract and have no idea what this means for me.
What is this for me exactly. There was no talk of a pay rise or a promotion. No talk of hiring other people. Can I use this as a bargaining chip to negotiate a salary increase or should I just bite the bullet and look for a new job?
