*** Update at 7 March 2011 ***
I have been a public servant for some 20 years. I was recently made redundant.
I wrote in this blog about my experiences in facing up to this fact, dealing with the consequences and trying to find a new job. It focused on the personal rather than the political although sometimes the two are too interconnected to separate.
Writing about my experiences helped me focus on what needed to be done. I have just started a new job after learning a lot from the readers of the blog. I will not be blogging here now but I plan to maintain the site as a resource for others who are having to take the same journey we have.
I hope that reading the blog helps you if you are going through this or gives the wider public an idea of what is going on.
Please feel free to comment. I always try to be respectful of other’s views and not to engage in abuse. Please do the same.
If there are resources you think deserve a look please feel free to use the site to let others know about them.
