Changing your career following redundancy

Dealing With Redundancy

Losing your job can be one of the hardest things you have to face in life. 

But remember…

Whatever happens, and whatever your circumstances, there are always positives you can take from the situation. The important thing is not that you have lost your job, but how you deal with losing your job. 

The internet is a fantastic place to keep educated and help guide you through redundancy. We have put together some articles we believe will help you prepare for your new future, whether you are looking for more information, money guides or mental health support, please check out the links below: 


Steps to your future career

Redundancy can mean new opportunities, including the chance to retrain for a new career. It is important to keep educated and explore all options for retraining, as well as the financial support available to help you on the path to your new future. You might find that losing your job opens the door to a new career. 

Adding to your existing skills or gaining qualifications in a new area are good ways of improving your chances of getting another job. They could also give your confidence a well-needed boost.

You’ll find lots of retraining choices open to you when you’ve been made redundant, from apprenticeships and internships to part-time, full-time or distance study courses at college, university or training centres.
