Redundancy

There is no such thing as "a job for life" these days. Businesses are much more dynamic in their organisational structures. The majority of people we speak to have experienced redundancy or a compromise agreement at some point in their careers, so if its happened to you, you are not alone. Nonetheless, it is a horrible experience for most people when it happens, and it can knock people’s confidence. So attitude is all important when it comes to bouncing back, viewing redundancy as a great opportunity to move your career in a new direction may be all the motivation you need.

If you are made redundant:

  1. Don't panic. Take the opportunity to think long and hard about what you really want to do next.
  2. Draw up a list of up to 40 companies who you think might be good to work for and who could utilise your skills and experience.
  3. Draw up a list of recruitment companies you might wish to work with. As a part of that process decide what values and approach you expect from a good recruitment company. Don't be afraid to ask them how they will use your details and work with you. Think twice about recruitment companies who will send your details to prospective employers without you knowing who they are or what the role is; do you see this as positive (because it gets your name out there) or negative (because your details could end up the wrong place for the wrong role).
  4. Identify 3 referees and get their permission to quote them as a referee.
  5. Call us to see if we can help you. Even if we can't help you immediately, we are always happy to offer advice.
  6. Network, network, network. Use your job search as a passport to constructive communication with people who can assist you to move on.
  7. Treat your job search as a job. Allocate time, plan it and execute your plan. However enjoy your increased leisure time to do the things you've wanted to do for ages but never had the time to. Just like when you are at work, you need to get the balance right
