Are You Getting Ready to Go Back to Work After a Redundancy break?

Need Help Updating Your Curriculum Vitae After a Redundancy Career Break?

After the 2007 recession, we have all been there. All sorts of companies started down-sizing when the economic crisis hit, so rest-assured that you are not alone. If you took time out to enjoy your redundancy package, then great! If you needed a little time to lick your wounds, then not so great - but we understand.

The main thing to remember about redundancies is that you are not alone and the decision is definitely not personal (at least it shouldn't be). In fact, we heard of many businesses that used the economic crisis to off-load costs they should have cut out of their business years ago. They just needed a reason to get their house in order and the recession finally gave it to them.

In our view, recruiters judge you by the way you deal with your redundancy. Some of us feel strong enough to get back to work immediately and use our redundancy package to over-pay the mortgage, buy a new car, or take the family on a great holiday. Others need time to reflect on what's important in life and use the opportunity to decide if that type of work is really what they want to do for the next 10 years. After all, would any of your former colleagues visit you in hospital if you broke your leg? Exactly!

What Should Your Redundancy Break CV Say?

It really depends on your priorities. If you have lived through a long period of unemployment, then getting your cash flowing again should be your number one priority. Equally, we all get a bit rusty commercially when we aren't working, so it could take you a good 4-6 weeks to get back up to your old speed. If this is the case, we will work with you to identify and call-out any non-commercial projects, achievements or study that you have completed to demonstrate that your brain is still switched on and that you are ready to get back in the game. If you've done a bit of globe-trotting and generally had a fun time, then that's okay too. Our challenge only comes if we spot that you consistently get made redundant and ask for sabbaticals throughout your career. Any smart employer will flag you as a high risk employee if this is the case. Either way, you can rest assured that we listen to your thoughts and feelings and make an objective appraisal of how you should position yourself for your next job.
