Shame if it's a Sony Store. I have a love/hate relationship with Sony but I do like visiting their stores.

Make sure you get paid your full redundancy entitlement. If you've been there over 6 years it should be quite a good amount.

only problem is, im still quite young, i started the job at 18 years old and i dont think i get as much as if i wouldve started it at 21 or so.
#31
No you won't. It does increase as you get older.

You should get half a week's gross pay for each complete year you worked at the company up until your 22nd birthday, and a week's gross pay for each complete year you worked there when you were 22 or older. (If you were over 41, you get a week and a half's gross pay per complete year over that age)

See it as an end of a era and a starting off a new one, take all the positives , and turn the negatives into positives too :)

Teaching assistants and teaching staff to go as well as technical staff ...............namely me .So ,after the summer holidays I'll be looking for work too .

Hope you get sorted in a new job soon.

my mum is in exactly the same position as you. She works in accounting in a primary school and has been told she wont have a job after the summer. she has major back problems but doesnt want to sit at home and not work so she works as much as she can and was told a few weeks back that she wont have a job to go back to. i really hope you find something!

get your payout and go backpacking.

get your working holiday visa for oz or nz and enjoy the next couple of years....

staying in 1 job for that long it will be hard to settle somewhere else so get ursen off

best advice i could give someone your age with a few grand coming your way

Sorry to hear , bit of a double blow to the family .
I have back problems too , no where near as bad since I had acupuncture a couple of years ago , so I cannot really do anything too heavy . I'm also a decorator , so have been doing 2 jobs , 3 days @ school and 3 days decorating .I'm now finding the work drying up a bit ,what with the recession and threat of jobs , the last thing folk want to do is spend money on the home .
I'm hopefull something will turn up on the job scene for everyone .
