Congrats. Ian, must be a weight off your mind.

That's good news.
I'm certain assessment centres are not the best approach.
The evidence from an interview or assessment is never as accurate as on the job performance. Thing is, most of the time on the job performance isn't recorded consistently enough to stop people claiming unfair selection for redundancy if it is used as the selection criteria. On face value an assessment centre is consistent and therefore legally much safer for an employer looking to reduce the numbers.

I've been lucky and managed to make things work for me. I've wrangled redundancy with good terms a few times in the past.

It looks more likely that redundancy is heading my way now.

Running out of work 2 weeks into the month when usually we struggle to complete it!!

I need more people to get Ill so i have more work!!!

Not really as it doesnt involve prescriptions.

Thrush would be better or cystitis!

Fingers crossed that the work picks up for you (or people are ill, but not life threatening ill!)

Just a small relief about bad work practices...

The company I work for ( the big petroleum company in Brazil ) made the annual Satistaction Inquiry with the employeers... The result in the refinery I work was worse than last year...

Then we were told that it will decrease the money for the career progression and promotions, as it has value 3 on the table to ranking the refineries of the company... we felt from 2nd to 8th on the refineries...

Sometimes I get sick of where I work, and it's the biggest company in Brazil.... :?

For those at risk of losing their jobs now I really hope everything works out for you. I've kind of said it above but I can't think of any other forum that would give you such genuine and compassionate responses. Such a good resource.

And I agree with the responses on assessment centres. My opinion is that job changes such as this should be sorted through performance management. Much easier for the employee to work with but, critically, much more difficult and time consuming for an employer to do consistently to ensure there is a minimum risk of tribunals etc.

aye hopefully mine will smooth out.

We've already been through a lot of cuts and i've already survived 3 rounds of redundancy so im obviously doing something right :P

So far ive lost 20% of my monthly bonus, my annual payrise was frozen as of friday which really annoyed me as its onlya  couple of weeks away...

But if i can get through this next lot thats been announced for 1st of april ill be fine.

If not i'll get a decent amount in pay outs and may actually go onto starting my own business which i've always wanted to do

On a related note, my wife had an interview for her pwn job yesterday - the job that she's been doing for the last 14 years, that she's now having to reapply for...

Sucks.

Particularly because she works part time, and it looks like the only thing that they will offer is a job share, which she won't be able to do because of family committments.

Sucks.

Just a reason for the local authority to streamline and get rid of all those messy part-timers.

No more purchase for Mr Bump in the near future...

That's an exotic line of work your wife's got.... and you're OK with that?  :?

I'm surprised they don't allow "a job share" as I've seen this quite often on the net... "messy part-timers" are often positively encouraged.

Seriously.. Sorry to hear that this cr@p is getting more common.
