Today I had another meeting regarding this whole redundancy malarky, to look at positions in the group where my skills could be applied.
I've identified 3 areas where there's currently no one doing that job but we need someone to, all in a similar field and using my skill base. They were very well received, and this is going on for a while longer while these are presented to assorted areas of group.
I'm not holding my breath, but these roles certainly need filling (for a sustainable future) despite our hiring freeze etc. We'll have to see.
Next news will be on January 5th (as @DigitalPulse, my 'witness', is away over the festive period). Gonna try and put it out of my head (save preventativly registering with a billion agencies) 'till then.
