BLUF: Should I take more exciting new role with more responsibility when I was happy with my current job and it would disrupt my family?
I currently have a job in a company I really like with good prospects for promotion next year.
I'm not job hunting but recently a friend and former colleague got in contact about an opportunity at his company. It's basically the International version of my curent job so a lot more responsibility, international travel, more interesting and good development with similar progression prospects but obviously lacking the good will I've built at my current company. The money is slightly more. The industry is slightly better but the new company is smaller than my current one.
It involves moving across the UK which while not far is a shame for close friends and family we currently live very near. I rent, have no children and my partner works from home and so his work is unaffected. I think my partner would be sad to move away from friends and family but supportive of me but I don't want to be 'penny smart and pound foolish' and upset my partner. I suppose I'm worried to make a big move and it turning out to be the wrong decision for some reason.
Ive listened to the accepting offer and relocation related casts but I'm still struggling to take the plunge.
