Hello teacher,
He will take up function as a Finance Manager on 01 Oct 15
He will be taking up function as a Finance Manager on 01 Oct 15
Could you please advise what is the difference between two above sentences and in which circumstances we will use it?Thank you so much in advance.

Hello Myuyen,

I've never heard the phrase 'to take up a function' and I suspect it may be a direct translation from French which doesn't quite work. We would be more likely to talk about 'taking up a position'.
