I am sorry to hear your news @Gazza_64 redundancy seems to be a fact of life these days and I have gone through it twice and its never nice. However when it happened to me first some 14 years ago it was the best thing to happen to me. It made me focus on things that were important and gave me the push I needed. I wish the best of luck for Thursday.

Sorry to hear that @Gazza_64. The difference between “permanent” and “temporary” jobs is that with “permanent” you don’t actually know how long the contract is. At least they’re not doing it at the usual time of just before Christmas, so it makes it easier to look for another job. Last time I lost a job the company went bust the day before payday so we didn’t even get the last month’s pay.

Oh no @Gazza_64 I’m so sorry to hear this. I’ve unfortunately been made redundant twice before I was even 30!

Always keep on the bright side, they’ll be other opportunities out there if the worst comes to the worst :purple_heart:

Sorry to hear this @Gazza_64 i was in the same situation 6 years ago after 25 years, we were strung along for 3 months and finished at Christmas 2015 with no warning after being reassured (lied to) that our jobs were safe.

You know what? It was actually for the better as i now work less hours, in a cleaner, safer environment with much nicer management.
Hopefully with you work ethic and experience you will find something suitable for you that doesn’t involve all the driving and nights away you endure.
Best of luck to you. :slightly_smiling_face:

Best of luck with this - I was in a similar situation in 2020 when the pandemic led to job cuts at my firm, where I’d worked for over 20 years. Think I’d got stuck in a rut but it was a bit overwhelming at first when I was made redundant, but I looked at it as a chance for a new start and after a few months jobless, found my current job which I absolutely love, it turned out to be the best thing.
As the saying goes, as one door closes, another one opens… :crossed_fingers:

I believe there is a massive need for HGV drivers. The thing with driving instructors is that you have to work when others don’t (evening/weekends) The better you are at teaching them the quicker they pass so more customers you need! @Gazza_64
