Anybody receive a job offer for a new position? They created the position and you're not replacing anybody. Prior to you arriving, the position didn't exist.

Did you accept it and did it work out?

Yes, it was a mess. I would do it again however. Ask a lot of questions about the expectations, the reasons for the position being created, etc.

Yes, several times. It has always worked well for me, as I have been able to develop the position in the direction I feel is best.

In my case, I was pulled for a special assignment and it was to create the new series of positions, at 3 levels. After it was done, and approved by HR, I was given one of them at the 2nd level, the rest of the openings were left to the usual competitive process. More recently I created a new position for my staff. In the 3 years since filling it the duties have changed some, but the person has worked out very well and it's freed up time to improve the work efficiency of the others.

Yes, those are the best ones , IMO, since there's no blueprint or anything to compare performance to.
It's what you make of it.
