Was talking last night to someone who failed an interview for his own job as a systems analyst but got redeployed, apparently, because of the down turn, there are 4,000 vacancies in the Job Centres, he now does "meeting and greeting" of the Job Seekers!

Less of the 'old', Spaw!!

Thanks for all the good wishes and kind thoughts, friends.

Now the fog of the last two weeks is clearing I really think this may turn out to have been a blessing in disguise :)

The new job will involve moving to a brand new library, built under PFI which will integrate the public library with the University library, local records office, archives etc.

This concept is attracting international attention, and the new building has won awards for its green credentials- natural lighting, heating and ventilation and sustainable materials used in construction.

The place to be!

Hey, Noz, respect!

I've been so busy empathising with the underlying theme of this thread, i.e. trying to hang on to my job, I haven't looked in here in a fortnight, so was greatly saddened to see it was you whom started this thread. I saw the date of the OP, and feared the hopelessness of your situation would lead to an unhappy story at the bottom.

But you did it!!!! I was so happy to read your great success, well done you.

Loads of love

Here in the US we can collect unemployment if we lose a job through no fault of our own. It is a pittance compared to a salary but it keeps the wolves from the door.
Anything like it available in the UK?

IIRC benefit should be available for 6 months automatically and subject to conditions after that.

The employer is also obliged to give a lump sum payment dependent on length of service.

mg, I'm in England, suffering from severe local authority cutbacks.

I have an interview on Thursday morning for an equivalent post elsewhere in the county. Went for a look around today and am feeling positive- though there are 4 of us going for 2 jobs there.

Not sure what I'll do if that's not successful, as only other jobs on offer to me are part-time and I can't afford to do that- but I'm not thinking of that for now.

Positive thoughts appreciated for Thursday morning....

COuld you say in a generic way where you are again? England? Australia? Ireland? I don't know what retirement and benefit situation is in other countries, but I would take part-time if I had to (which I had to years ago and still am not full time and pieced together other things)..but I get almost full-time retirement and benefits...part-time would in many cases be better than nothing..or if you could patch two part-time togethers...mg

VT's case is similar to what you are looking at. It sounds as though she is doing what they will ask you to do more than one FTEworth. When your union rep speaks with them, make sure that job creep [not the supervisor] is an issue.

What they now call increased productivity is often thinly disguised "make one worker do what two used to do and let them be thankful that even have a job."

When Jack London discovered he was in that situation, he threw his coal shovel at his boss.

Thanks all for the positive thoughts and suggestions.

Lots going on here at work and at home- my partner had a hip replacement on Friday (same day as my unsuccessful interview) so my brain is overfull at the moment...

Unfortunately I can't afford to retire yet or even reduce my hours, so have to jump through a few more hoops yet. I have another 13yrs to go before I can claim my pension- I'm young enough to have had my working life extended considerably.

I have let my union rep know of the situation from my point of view and they are going to be meeting with management this week.

In the meantime I am still supposed to provide excellent customer service...

Noreen I am sorry this happened to you. I hope you find something soon and that it is better than what you were doing. Start networking, and consider reinventing your career by trying something new if possible, especially if there is something you have always wanted to do. Best wishes for success.
