Thanks a lot Dave.

I'm not the only one.

The company went bust so there are over 200 of us in the same boat.

That's a shock for you, (being polite there!). Hopefully you can find something else and if you can't, I hope it is not too much of a hardship for you.

Hopefully things will work out well for you Joe.
Itís a shock at the moment but there just might be light at the end of the tunnel in the end.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I'm very sorry to hear that.

It's truly horrid news to receive.

All the best.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

Thanks to all for your commiserations/good wishes.

To be honest it wasn't a shock as we knew that the company was in difficulty.

The shock will come when I look for work as I'd been with the company for 34 years.

Anyway I've survived 2 divorces so no doubt I'll get through this too.

All the best,


Joe

Very sorry to hear that after your long years of loyal service, Joe. Hopefully the fact you've not jumped from job to job will stand you in good stead. All the best and please keep us posted.

Sorry to hear of your impending unemployment, Joe.

I have been made redundant twice through companies going 't*ts up' in seven years (early 2007 and late 2013). After the last one and at 57, I made upwards of 40 job applications in the following six months, and apart from the rare acknowledgement of receipt of my application, heard nothing else. I could imagine the young HR upstarts getting their socks off to count up my age from my DoB on the forms...

A small inheritance and the discovery that I could activate the pension that ended up in the Pension Protection Fund from the first company meant that I could retire early, so I had a bit of luck there, I hope you have luck in your job search.
My inspiration - never let a setback get you down...
