Unemployed ...

Well after almost ten years helping people into work and six rounds of redundancies I'm now officially unemployed.

Have known since April that all staff except three managers would be leaving at the end of November due to our contract with DWP about to end. It seemed ages away but the last 6 weeks have raced by. I'm pleased to say that everyone who has been made redundant have secured new jobs except for one who has decided to retire ...

I'm very lucky to be moving to a company in a similar line of work and will be starting with them shortly. phew! Just got my first two weeks training plan and I'm going to be very busy so better crack on with Christmas shopping!

Well done Aliez on securing employment - but a bit of a nasty boss having to make you work this soon before Christmas - would have been nice to start the New Year off good and refreshed . . .

Best of luck, hope it lasts another ten year!

I was prepared to start on the 3rd ... I'll get all the stuff like email set up, do any online training and will spend some time shadowing staff so I'm ready to hit the ground running in January ...

'... hit the ground running' - after your preparation, you'll know in which direction to run ..
Hope you enjoy the new job.
