being made redundant is recognised as one of the top ten things that can happen in your life and since covid-19 it has become very prominent in the world. Here are some tips to help pick yourself up and get a fantastic new role…
take some time to reflect
Although it is easier said than done, try and think of the positives. Reflect on what you have learnt from your previous role and try and find out how you can apply this to a new role. If you need help, contact a recruitment agency (like us!) – a great recruitment consultant will help guide you in what you could do for your next move and advise on the best roles out there right now that would suit you.
ask yourself “what do you want?”
Being made redundant could be a blessing in disguise and can help you evaluate where you are going in your career. Perhaps you decide you want to retrain or look for a job with perks that you didn’t get with your other role, for example virtual roles, so you can work from home.
sort out your cv and linkedin profile
Make sure people know that you are looking for new opportunities. Recruiters are always looking on LinkedIn for amazing new candidates, so make sure everything is up to date. Ensure that you have a new and updated CV ready to go, but make sure to keep it positive and don’t mention redundancy on your CV.

try not to get consumed looking for a new role
Looking for a new role can be like a day job in itself and it can quickly become overwhelming. Instead of concentrating on it all day, just do it for a couple of hours to help you keep a clear mind.
don’t get disheartened
The current climate has made us face lots of challenges and finding a job is one of them. Although there are jobs available at the moment, because the situation is constantly changing clients are taking longer to hire. Don’t be disheartened if things take time, everything will workout in the end.
