I've got a couple of friends who work in academia, university admin, they've been furloughed until October

My sister in law works in a nail bar and is still on furlough, same as her sister who works in a gym

I think our local leisure centre, the life guards etc have been furloughed according to the local paper

Still furloughed in lower retail management. Just about to start a new job though as I think my old role will be made redundant in the next few months.

My friends son is a kitchen fitter and still furloughed. Presumably because people don't want strangers in their homes at the moment.
Can ask why you said not teaching? I'm a TA and none of us or the teachers, office staff etc in school have been furloughed we have worked all the way through about 6 or 7 of the worst weeks in every other day but for a month or so now everyday.

Retail. I'm on part time furlough

STBXH is. He works in the media. He is looking for new roles, though, as he doesn’t expect to go back to that one. Unfortunately everything is dead in his sector ATM. It’s complicating our divorce.

I work for a charity which is keeping us on furlough as long as possible. I'm desperate to go back as I love my job and team, but I suspect it'll turn into redundancy in a couple of months.

A number in our business are on furlough - we work on construction projects. Some areas are still very busy (utilities, rail) and others are dead (aviation, commercial property) so we are doing our best to spread the workload.

I work in HR so very busy currently & a colleague has been off since March due to lack of childcare. His wife is a key worker so they have a childcare place, but didn’t want to take it. It’s causing many, many issues, particularly as we are topping up to 100%.

Admin for a sports activity. Still furloughed with no return date yet

SierraHotel Sun 28-Jun-20 16:56:56

Me, going back on Wednesday. I work in childcare, I've really missed the little people!

I’m still on furlough, part time receptionist , Engineering

I was wondering why not teaching too? I am support staff in a secondary school which was closed to pupils until the beginning of this month. Only the lab/DT technicians, reprographics, kitchen staff and TAs had no work to do at all while it was shut for a few weeks, and they have been in FT since 1st June. Before that Office and cleaning staff were in on a rota, finance staff worked remotely all day and of course teachers have not been on furlough either, working all day from home from the start and in now on a rota.

CurlyhairedAssassin Sun 28-Jun-20 17:08:48

People are forgetting that just because a certain school is closed to YOUR child/ren doesn’t mean to say the staff are sitting at home doing nothing!

Nix2020 Sun 28-Jun-20 17:11:55

I'm airport staff, I went back Friday on PT furlough. My partner also airport staff different airport is still furloughed

CurlyhairedAssassin Sun 28-Jun-20 17:11:56

Judging by the number of men in Lycra on bikes I see on my way to work at 8.15 and more people walking in groups or cycling that I see on the way home again, it looks like a lot of people are still on furlough, although the traffic has gradually got busier since the beginning of the month.

Flippinfurloughed Sun 28-Jun-20 17:14:29

Me - admin in security for construction companies. There’s been a lot of people made redundant last week so I’m relieved to have missed this round, but incredibly nervous to see if that will stay the case.

I am still furloughed and likely to be until September. I work in an independent school as a Receptionist.

AudacityOfHope Sun 28-Jun-20 17:53:48

Me. I'm in marketing. I expect/hope to be made redundant by the end of the year so I can hopefully retrain to do something a bit more useful.

I have returned, charity but about a quarter of our team still is.
