Hi, im new to thr forum so unsure if i can ask this question but im looking for advice on the following situation. An internal promotion arose and myself and a colleague applied. I did not get it. I am thinking to raise a grievance for the following reasons (just wondering if its reasonable). 1) the successful candidate was given advanced warning about the position so she could train /prepare. 2) she is friends with the manager and with one of the interviewers. 3) she had only been in the job a month or so. Ive been there for 2 years (with no complaints regarding my work). Ive requested feedback to see if theres a genuine reason for ne not getting the role but 4 months later ive still not received it. The day before the interview my manager suggested i applied for other jobs. To me it seem unfair and unequal opportunities. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
