Hi Guys. Following my last post I thought I’d better write a very brief update to let you know that I’ve still got a job.
We offer a subscription service here at getting down under (see the link at the bottom of this post) which enables visitors to our site to receive the latest news and updates via email. I had quite a few of our subscribers email me in response to our last email wishing me all the best. To those people I thank you for all of your good wishes and crossed fingers; it obviously worked!
In slightly sadder news, Out of a department of about 30 people, all but two of us were either made redundant (including a third of my own team) or had their roles relocated to Sydney (a transition that will take between 3 and 12 months). To say I feel very much like one of the lucky ones is somewhat of an understatement although it was never going to be good news.
My reporting line has changed (so I report into a separate business division) but I live to fight another day at least. Phew!!
