oatmealwalnut:  You definitely shouldn’t quit unless you have signed a contract at your new job and everything is official with that. But if you get the new, better job, that also pays more, I don’t see the problem. It sounds like an upgrade in a million ways!

Jump on that new job.  I stayed far too long in a company that was draining my soul out of me because I felt like if I left, it would cripple the rest of the staff, who were mostly people I liked and didn’t want to screw over by leaving.  But I did, and I now have a job that doesn’t drive me to tears on a regular basis, and guess what?  My old staff is just fine, and in fact several of them will be at my wedding in a few months.  I was really worried about starting a new job, too, especially since it was completely different from any of the jobs I’ve been doing in the last fifteen years, but it’s been a huge blessing.  Go for it!

I don’t think you should quit until you have received a formal offer and contract, this prospective one sounds very promising and it will certainly lift your spirits if you get it.. fingers crossed for you 🙂 If it doesn’t work out then keep looking you will find something that is perfect for you.

I hate my job at the moment, not just the role but the people I work with basically act as if i am invisible. Fiance and I moved countries and I struggled getting work so took a role a level below my previous.. in the hope it would make me more appealing in the new country. I am only on a contract which finishes up at the end of the year so I’m holding out.. I cant wait to leave and daily wish I could quit but it wouldn’t be fair on Fiance for that stress and I think I would be more down not working.
