I had accepted an oral offer for lecturer position in UK. I had the offer letter, with question if it is ok to contact my referee? I answered yes and I informed the HR that I had couple of questions before approving the offer. They answered but I did not say yes to offer as I had meeting with HoD to discuss my salary and start-up package
I was surprised that I received reply that I already accepted my offer. It is hard to negotiate at this point
What should I do? I need this job, should I inform them of this confusion and ask for clarification?
