I work for one of the Big 4 banks and had to go through a restructure recently. I was asked to fill out 3 preferences as part of Expression of Interest within our overall business unit. I was not offered any of my preferences but was offered a role which the management deemed to be comparable which i had to accept as i was not given an option for redundancy.
Whilst the role offered is in same business unit and my salary remains the same, the scope of the role is very different, no where related to my skills/ previous experience and i have no motivation to perform my day to day role.
I am really confused on how to approach this issue and if i should be very honest with my manager advising this role was not preference as part of my EOI. There arent many roles in the market nor they are internally. I have always been a high performer in my previous roles and this role is not the right fit for me and have no interest to learn to even meet basic expectation.
My manager is also new to his role and feel like this may cause issues between us if i be honest at this stage as its very early days.
Please help !
P.S : I know when things are put into perspective around the world.. i am not in a bad position and it could be worst but its really taking a toll on my mentally and affecting my personal life.
