Giz a Job!

Well, the threatened redundancy happened earlier today. All in all a pretty eventful day in my life!

My director came out this lunchtime with the letter that I am to attend a meeting next Friday to discuss the terms and conditions of my redundancy.

This is the first time I have ever been made redundant and I have been working since 1981.

I have a 2nd interview with one company week commencing 20th April, so wish me luck.

I may soon be asking you send me red cross parcels!

  1. You poor thing - at least you will have some time to discuss things with your wife.
    Red cross parcel at the ready (mainly tea & sympathy, fruit cake and plasters!) xxx

  2. Mm, even when expected it is still absolutely gutting. It is nearly 10 years ago that I was on the receiving end - I'd been in the same job since levaing university, almost 14 years.

    It was a couple of weeks after being told, while still working my notice, that I finally cried. Don't leave it so long, Emma.

    Single piece of advice: stock up on tissues.

  3. What a week for you Emma - good luck

  4. Good luck Emma. Try to stay strong and don't get disheartened. You have really had some week. All the best.
