1. seize the chance/opportunity to do something, recognise the value of sth
I would jump at the chance/opportunity to do that
To 'jump at the chance' to do something is to be eager to take up the opportunity. "I would jump at the chance to visit Mexico." 'To jump at the chance' means you would appreciate and accept the offer if someone made it. It can be used in situations where you are talking about something you would like to do or a dream you would like to realise or to tell someone how lucky they are. "I can't believe you got offered a supervisor position, I would jump at the chance to have that role."
