I need some help for the following :
I am currently working in a department through a recruitment agency (a casual staff member). The same role which I am doing, it was also advertised on department's website for permanent basis. I applied for the job and got selected for the role. Can I accept the job offer? It will mean that I have to ask my recruitment agency that I can't continue the assignment and they will know that I will be working directly with the department. Does that can cause an issue for me?
I have signed the following contract with the agency :
Notification of Offer of Employment
For a period of 6 months from the cessation of your last Assignment, you agree that you will not accept a
direct offer of employment whether temporary, contract or permanent from any Client or former Client of
XXX (recruitment agency) for whom you performed an Assignment without first notifying XXX(recruitment agency).
your help will be really appreciated. thanks.
