    Take the job. Itíll help with motivation and occupying yourself, apart from the obvious financial bit.

    Hibs will always be there.

    Are you saying your are being forced to work 12 hour shifts, 7 days a week or you will be made redundant?

    If not and you are doing 5 days but now two of them will be Sat / Sun instead of say Mon / Tues then maybe go for it for a wee while and see how you get on. Normally though would employers not normally rota such shifts so everyone had to work weekends sometimes but not always?

    Agree with this. If you’ve been away for two years that’s a a long time. Going back to doing twelve-hour shifts is a big ask, make sure your work know that. You should have some sort of phased return, if they wanted to offer you the post then they should be okay with that.

    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Take the job. Always easier to find another better job when you currently have one.

    Take the job, no question. The money, security, interaction, sense of purpose all puts you back into much more control of what happens next for you.
