If you’ve recently been made redundant, you’ll know that it’s a very challenging experience, both financially and mentally. Experts have likened the emotional trauma of unexpected job loss to that of a bereavement, because there is a similar grieving process as you adapt to your changed circumstances. This short course is intended to make this experience as painless as possible, and will walk you through practical guidance, as well as discuss how to deal with the negative emotions you might be feeling. You’ll learn more about your rights during the redundancy process along with how to contest your employer’s decision, financial planning advice, how to prepare yourself to re-enter working life, and more. We’ll also talk you through the mental health challenges you might be facing, and how to start thinking about your happiness moving forward. This course is delivered via interactive eBooks and printable PDFs which can be studied at your own pace, in your own time.

We’ve turned this course into a FREE Job Ready Pack, containing modules on CV Writing and Interview Skills, which will give you the tools and knowledge you need to apply for new roles with confidence and ace the interview process.
