I have recently been made redundant from a job in the City (I was an Executive Assistant) there is just nothing out there .. I've had one interview but I didn't want that job, but apart From that most things are on hold which is a real worry.
I'm thinking of just doing something different like being a hermnes delivery driver/shelf stacker just to get so some money coming in in the meantime.
How is everyone elses job search?
I was made redundant 2 weeks into lockdown from my role as an office manager. I signed up to job agencies and a week later started a part time PA role on a short term contract. I also signed up to the post office to do parcel sorting. That's a bit hit and miss but it has helped keep things ticking over. I have had to take a drastic pay cut but I'm working and its better than nothing.
I have noticed a lot more jobs becoming available on the job sites but a lot of them are short term contract and low wages.
That's great you are getting something!! I've seen a lot more full time roles coming in but part time there is nothing 😬
