    I have learnt from experience that it is never a wise move to tell your current employer that you are looking for another job. If they actually value you as an employee in the first place then they wouldn't pay you a wage which is a joke.

    Personally I'd leave the low paid job and take the other job for sure, money isn't everything and at least it's for a year, if it doesn't work out you also know when you'll be out of work and can plan for it.

    I just wanted to thank you all for the advice, and let you know that I was offered the job for real today; I think i'm going to take it too. Once again thanks to all, and I'm gonna certainly be sticking 'round here (even if I won't be an Edugeek anymore).

    Just to chip in: the best things in life often turn out to be the riskiest. I know when I was offered this job I had to ask them for five minutes to consider because I had talked myself out of wanting it, having convinced myself that one of the other applicants would be offered the position. Luckily I went with the "fsck it" approach, figuring no risk no gain, and it's all worked out pretty damn well for me - and by all accounts, I got out my last job at the right time (academification).

    So if you're still not sure, and with me not knowing the specifics of your situation - I'd say go for it, generally.

    Go for the job. If you get it and you hand your notice in, you will either get "Oh, goodbye" or "How about we give you this much instead...?" Either way, it isn't an opportunity lost!
