With news of redundancies and layoffs at Twitter, and similar news from other tech and EdTech businesses, I wanted to let you all know it happens and you will recover. Here are my experiences with redundancy.
I worked during my A-levels and degree where, in 1996, I was lucky to go straight into paid employment. Since then I’ve worked in a number of industries, but I’ve been in education since 2007.
I say this as I wanted to highlight 4 instances where I was made redundant. Yes, in 26 years I’ve been made redundant four times, each very different from the others, and at different times of my life. The impact of each instance varied but there is always an impact when you’re made redundant, whether you have dependents or not.
To be clear, this is a post about my experiences with redundancy, not that I have been made redundant. Apologies if this was made clear when I originally posted.
