    Give notice before or after CRB check

    Moneywise I suppose it's not prudent to give your notice to your current employer until your next employer has informed you of you new service start date. Presumbably the new employer can't give you this information until you're cleared by the CRB.

    Would it still be good manners to give your current school an informal indication when your successful at the interview?

    Yes, you should mention that you were successful in the interview pending CRB / health / reference checks, and that you will notify your existing employer of your start date when you have it by sending in a letter of resignation.

    If you can do this verbally it means that there is no confusion with telling someone you have a new job and you actually resigning.

    Thanks for that Tony.

    At what point is your current employer allowed to advertise your existing post?

    We sometimes advertise jobs on spec before the person on interview even has it. That's mainly teaching staff though as they have specific times to resign by.

    And sometimes that's when they suddenly decide to offer you the rise/increase in hours you'd been asking for, for the past 12 months.

    This can be a very grey area. If a person has said they are going to leave yet not handed in their resignation you can advertise or even appoint but the person can chose not to leave ... leaving the employer in a difficult position of *having* to still employ the first person as well as their appointed replacement.

    Most employers will only advertise and appoint someone once the letter of resignation is in.

    An employer cannot advertise for a job that has someone already in post without them resigning or giving significant indication that they have employment elsewhere (note ... not just seeking employment elsewhere) as it can be deemed as constructive dismissal ... another reason why employers are loathe to advertise until they have that piece of paper to say you are leaving.
