Hi all!! I’m looking for a bit of advice on here.
I was diagnosed in 2016 with RRMS, currently have a Tysabri infusion every 4 weeks to keep this disease at bay.
I still work part time and have career aspirations, I have applied for an internal promotion at work and think I have a good chance of successfully gaining the role. The one thing that is bugging me is that the job available is a full time position. I don’t think I could work full time without it affecting my MS. The most I think I could work in a week is 30 hours as this would still allow me to pace myself and not aggravate my condition at all.
I don’t know if I should mention this at the interview stage or have a private conversation with the management prior to my interview or if I should mention this if I am successful and offered the position.
Would my employer be obliged to accommodate my request for a 30 hour working week if I was offered the role, not sure where I stand. I obviously want to continue a fulfilling career as best I can however I do need to be mindful about my health too. In the past I have tried to do too much and made myself unwell and extremely fatigued.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
