When you experience change in your employment circumstances it's normal to feel uncertain about the future. You don't have to handle this alone, we are here to support you. We'll help you to navigate your transition from Marshalls, to whatever you chose to do next. You'll be provided with some practical support, as well as information on organisations that can help you with things like…
- CV writing
- Job searching (how to market yourself and where to look for new opportunities)
- Interview preparation
- Government support available
- Emotional support and details of the expert advice CiC can offer
- Help with managing your finances
- Considering retirement
The support and services on offer will be available before you leave Marshalls, after you have left, and up until the end of September 2020.
Please take some time to read through the Outplacement Support Guide as it provides some great information on the topics mentioned above.
In addition to this, we will also support you through one to one sessions, and workshops – more information on these will be shared very soon.
In the meantime, if you do need any support, please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We're all individual people, each with our own set of circumstances and worries. Please don't face your worries alone. Support is available to you and you should definitely use it as soon as you need it, before things get overwhelming. We partner with CiC, who offer a wide range of support, advice and guidance on redundancy as well as other topics including:
- Work life
- Home life
- Mental wellbeing
- Counselling and therapy
- Legal matters
- Money and debt advice
This service is completely free, and available for both you and your family (as long as they live at the same address as you). You can access their support before you leave Marshalls, and for three months afterwards.
It's a completely confidential service, and CiC will never share the details of anyone who has used their services.
Here's how to contact them, as well as some handy helpsheets taken from their website:
LinkedIn is a social network aimed at professional networking and career development. It's a great tool for job searching, and helping to build professional relationships. You can use this link to set up your own account: https://uk.linkedin.com
Networking is about making contacts and building relationships, that can lead to jobs or other work-related opportunities. It can be extremely beneficial. Please have a read of the document below, which gives advice on how to build a networking strategy.
Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) is the Scottish Government's initiative to help individuals during redundancy situations. This is a free service for our Scottish colleagues, which can help take away some of the strain of dealing with redundancy.
Take some time to support your mental health. The "Little Book of Coping" is a really great read that helps you think about what works for you to get the best out of the current situation and to improve how resilient you’re feeling.
