First steps

It is best to rise quite early as if you were going to work and structure your day, in a similar way to your normal working day. Use your days to update your CV, search for jobs and register with recruitment agencies. Seek out any support organisations that can help you in your search for employment.

For some people redundancy has been a liberating experience. It has allowed them to re-evaluate their working life, to think about what they really enjoy doing and to re-train.

Think about volunteering. It can give you the chance to gain new skills and experience to enhance your CV. It will give you the opportunity to network with others and may provide an insight into other types of work. Overall, it is a positive experience that enables you to feel that you are in control and moving forward.
