Bombed an interview today with a boutique advisory firm. Been an IT Auditor for the last six years, and whilst I don't necessarily hate the work, the firm and people aren't great. Keen on moving to 1st or 2nd line of defence roles but it's one rejection after the other.

Anyone got good success stories help to cheer me up?

Hi all

I recently accepted a role in a start-up and received the contract today.

The offer letter mentioned 'enhanced' parental pay but the contract mentions 'statutory'

I'm not planning on using this benefit anytime soon but that if I need to I won't be messed about.

Any of you UK based would be able to let me know the amount of details they have in this section of their contract? Not sure what the norm is? (I was contractor before so not so relevant info). Thanks in advance!

Thank you!
