Last year pre Covid, I was bullied out of my role at work- went down the legal route and got a payout. Then Covid hit and getting back to work was so tough so been living off the payout.

I got a call yesterday offering me an amazing role at a great organisation with a fantastic culture. The pay and benefits are a lot more than what I was earning at the toxic old place and I’ll be working lesser hours!

I had been so down and was worrying as I’m the main bread winner but I am so relieved that I don’t have to worry anymore. Keeping the news to myself in real life but just wanted to share with someone..

Also for anyone going through similar or looking for a job, please don’t give up. I know how hard it is and how bad the anxiety can be, just keep going

Honestly @Totaldick it happens when you least expect it. They contacted me initially in august last year and went quiet until last week. Really keep going

Amazing!! Congrats OP!

I know what it's like landing your dream job - I still can't quite believe I'm here and it's been about 2 years. Hope you really enjoy it, sounds like you deserved some good news.

I needed this today!!!!! I'm so proud of you standing up to bullies but you shouldn't have had to go through that.

I'm not out of work but been through a tough time. I completely get it xxx
