    Redundancy . . . or not Redundancy???

    I've just been in the middle of an outsourcing project at work, today they have announced the new model and what jobs will be available staying onshore and what will be available offshore.

    Not long before the outsourcing I moved into a new role, my new role is going to be offshore but my old role is staying, so they have given me the option of taking the redundancy or to revert to my old role and continue for the new company in that role.

    The redundancy is worth about 4-5k tax free to me, but I can't guarantee being able to find a new job etc.

    What do people think? Take the redundancy and the risk? Or take a step backwards to my old role and have the security of the job going forward!?!?!

    I really can't decide so just wondered what other peoples opinions were on this???

    If i was in your position i would risk it, but make sure you find out the exact amount of redundancy you will get before you agree. I know people who have expected to get 2-3k more than what they actually got.

    I would take the step back and have the job security mate. Yea 4-5l is a nice little lump but how long will that last with bills and using it to pay for things?!

    At least with the step back you will stay in the job and can continue to earn a wage whilst looking out for new jobs again. If the same sort of role crops up again in the future you should be a shoe in

    keep the job I would say.

    I've stuck with mine for several years now and just got called 1hr ago saying they want to promote me again. I said yes, but everything that I take on board is on my own terms and I get to give all the crap stuff to someone else

    have to agree with keeping the job. If the payout was for exceptional amount (over 20k) then i would say take the gamble. But as has also been said 4k will last what 2 months? So not really worth taking the risk.

    the countries situation may be improving, but very slowly.

    keep the job mate, stating the obvious but you'd be lucky to find another job so quickly

    Right now in this current economic climate where decent jobs paying the right rate to reflect your commitment and ability are few and far between, would you really want to make yourself redundant with the promise of 4-5k which will most likely disapear after a few months with outgoings etc....

    Simple choice for me, move back into your previous role.. A bit of job security is the order of the day at present..

    The questions to ask yourself, how stable is your company at present?... Are you likely to earn the 4-5k within the next few months? Are you likely to lose your job if you move back to your previous role?... If things seem a little uncertain, only then would I consider redundancy!...

    There are so many highly skilled and semi skilled people out of work right now. Recession does not discriminate!........

    keep the job and look for another in the meantime... But make sure that there is no pay cut or anything
