Oh happy days.
I’ve previously mentioned my imminent redundancy. I say “imminent” although the date could be anywhere between April and September before I’m cast aside like a worthless statistic.
It’s not all bad news though, because we’ve had some presentations from a few organisations looking out for our best interests. We’ll hopefully be able to get some extra training paid for by a West Midlands-based project aimed at redundancy-threated workers, plus there are opportunities from out-placements with prospective employers.
The Job Centre guy gave us a few slides setting out how poor we’re all going to be if we’re on job seekers’ allowance. I don’t want to be relying on that.
Overall, though, I think I’d much prefer to keep my job thanks [slight understatement alert]
