Sadly, current market conditions have meant there has been a high level of redundancies recently.
However, it is important to stay positive and not to panic. Try and look at the situation as an opportunity for change. Take the time to evaluate your experience and skills and think about what you would like to do next. You may wish to use the time to take a course that would be valuable to your career, carry out some volunteer work, or even take some time out to travel. It is important to use your time constructively and not to make any rushed decisions. Talk to friends, family and your business network to see if there are any opportunities for you and consult our career advice pages.
