Apparently David will know around April 20 which city he is assigned to for work. Since he’ll be in Montpellier until June 12, and he’s supposed to start work June 15, we need to move before the stage even begins on May 25. One little problem – even though David just found out he will become a fonctionnaire and need to move, we still have to give 3 months’ notice to our landlord. Normally if it’s a “mutation professionnelle” you are allowed to give only one month notice. But since David is resigning from his CDI on April 30 and because he’s changing sectors or whatever, it doesn’t count.
So we have to pay rent through June, unless we can find someone to take the apartment. We are still going to move at the beginning or middle of May, but pay rent for that entire month. And then we hope someone else will be here for June so we don’t have to waste money on two apartments. Needless to say, I’m a little annoyed and a lot stressed. I can’t do anything yet to prepare and it’s driving me crazy.
The not-yet-definitive/could-be-completely-wrong list of cities for the positions are: Strasbourg, Caen, Nantes, Dijon, Lyon, Chambéry, Digne-les-bains, Toulouse, Chateauroux, Nevers, 2 postes à Paris et 3 en région parisienne (Versailles, Cergy, Bobigny). But since there are 12 people before David, who knows if he can get Chambéry. I will seriously cry if he is forced to go anywhere near Paris.
Only 5 more days of work before spring vacation…
