Covid-19 Job thread?
Looks like there well be a lot of jobs lost over the coming weeks, and months.

Is it worth pinning a thread at the top to see if we can help each other out? I seem to remember this happening quite well back in 2008.

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?
Phants, is your job something that can be done remotely? I suspect not otherwise that option would probably have already been offered.

As has been suggested, see what package is on offer - it may be the perfect opportunity for you to change from actually doing the job to advising others how to do it, and if it's a role that occurs across many companies/sectors then that opens up other avenues of opportunity.

I'm basically suggesting moving into a consultancy role which, with a decent severance package, gives you a lot more control over your time/life.

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?

As harsh as this sounds you need to read between the lines, contact ACAS for advice just to ensure you are not being discriminated against due to your age. Also wait to see what kind of payoff they offer, it might be too good for you to kick up a fuss about keeping your job or applying for the restructured post which you will not get.

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?
So...you need to separate the person (phantom) from the role (the job he is employed to do).

A company can determine whatever roles it wants or needs in its structure to run the business and they will often be different to the current roles.

As a rough rule of thumb, if the new role has 80%+ of the same responsibilities as your current role then you could expect to be mapped to it and not made redundant assuming there are the same number of those types of role in the new structure. If the responsibilities of the new role have materially changed or there are less of them in the new structure then redundancy may apply.

I would have a sensible and open conversation with the seniors about the change and whether they see you as part of the go forward business. At least then you know exactly where you stand and can plan your future and next steps around this.

I'm no expert but is there any way you can ask that they provide training for this role, or offer to self-fund so you'll be qualified?

If you can get anything like a "no" to that question in writing then that might possibly help you out if push comes to shove.

Again I'm no expert but I've heard of similar situations and there's potentially some unspoken obligation that the employer keeps employees up to date on training etc.

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?
They’re allowed to do this but with 18 years service you would hopefully get a decent pay off? Take the money and go do something else for a few years

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?
Anyone here good on employment law?
Basically my work is manoeuvring me out of my job. I have been there for 18 years and they’re ‘restructuring the department ‘ such that my position is not needed but one with more skills is. The new position has skills I don’t have and they’ve told me I’m welcome to apply for it. They did this years ago too-an old boy used to run the photocopier room and the management didn’t like him and wanted him out. So they changed his job spec such that it involved some heavy lifting which they knew he couldn’t do. I’m 57 and about to be cast on the scrapheap so any help/advice would be gratefully accepted.Cheers.

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?
Iqvia, who are a well known company in the pharma world, are currently involved in hiring for the national Covid 19 testing programme, and have been advertising for field based Covid testers. I believe other agencies are also handling these roles?

I understand that this is a 6 month contract and about £40k pro rata with car allowance etc.

Not sure how advancd they are with recruiting for this programme but worth emailing them them if you are interested.


Hope that's useful to sombody.

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?
Late to the thread but to the plunge in October last year, asked for voluntary redundancy to do a bit of traveling and do a Masters course, got back to UK late Feb and have been living off the remaining money ever since, now I'm so desperate I took a 2am start job for a supermarket that's slowly killing me. Any jobs for a 40 year old Resource Planner with a degree in Archaeology would be greatly appreciated :)
