The catastrophic collapse of Thomas Cook this September was painful to watch from a distance, so we can only imagine what it must have felt like to be one of the thousands of employees who lost their jobs overnight. Neither bosses nor staff want to see mass redundancies. But should the worst happen and you find yourself summarily jobless, or if you’re a business owner who’s been forced to shed a large number of employees at short notice, what steps can you take to ease the damage?

Call the experts

The best course of action if you’ve been made unemployed unexpectedly is to seek the help of those who are able to find the right job for you, fast.

We were on hand to have a friendly chat, offer employment advice and place people in the best roles to suit their skills profile. Being made redundant can make you feel all-at-sea and unsure of where to turn, but it always helps to give tried-and-trusted employment experts a call.
