Quick brief for context
- I'm in the finance industry
- Been with the company for close to 8yrs
- Been in the same role for about half of that
- Two years ago company was acquired by a bigger one but both teams were kept separate
- In April this yr, plans were announced to fully integrate both companies which means restructure from top to bottom
- Finally had my consultation regarding my team and my role
- Was told my role is now redundant and mentioned a role they think I would be fit for
- The new role looks a little more silo'ed (dealing with mostly one part of the business only) although the title is a bit of a promotion
- They told me if I wanted the role, I'll have to apply for it (so not exactly applying for my own role, which no longer exist in the new structure)
Question: If my role has been made redundant and I don't have interest in the new role, will I be offered a redundancy if I choose not to apply or would I still have to "play the game" and go through the application process in order to be offered VR?
Thank you !
So I think I've gotten some more clarity on my situation. I emailed HR and essentially was told that there was that role they think I should apply for and there are others across the business that I could apply for during the redeployment period which ends in mid-Sept. If I choose not to purse other internal opportunities then my employment will end in redundancy (yay!)
So I guess the next question is what I should be looking out for during the redeployment period so I'm not getting short-changed or they don't back out on any agreements etc? I have yet to receive payout estimates which I've been told is being calculated as I requested.
