Merger and Restructure at TELCO
close

Hi I am Craig, I am 54 and I worked as a CFO of a large technology business . We recently merged with another firm and they didn't need two CFO's so I decided to take a package. My wife and I want to take some time out and do a few things on our "bucket list" like climb Machu Picchu and see Easter Island, but I am not ready to retire, I want one more big role. I have been at my current company 7 years, so I am a bit out of touch with the job market.

Hi. I am Lin. I am 32. I have been working in retail my whole life, I love it. My last role was a Shelf Planner, in a boutique retail chain. It let me combine my creative side with my business skills. Unfortunately, retail is tough these days and my job was cut in a recent restructure program. I have decided to “seize the day" and start my own boutique.

Big Bank Change Program

Hi I am Dave, I am 44, have 19 years experience in marketing. I have spent the last 8 years as a Senior Marketing Manager at a financial services firm. Our team went through a restructure and I found myself without a role. It's been tough to come to terms with the change, but I am really focused on finding another marketing role with a big corporate as soon as possible. I have a toddler, my wife is expecting again in 6 months and she will be taking time off from her role as a consultant so I really need to get back into the workforce.

Hi. I am Lucy, I am 48 and I worked as an HR Director for a mid-size insurance company. I was recently made redundant when our new CEO came on board and wanted to bring in her own Executive Team.

I am really career-focused and want to use this opportunity to find a more senior position for myself. I would really like to change industry as well. I need to get back to work as quickly as possible though as I am the sole breadwinner for my son Ben and I, as I was recently divorced.

It was one of the best decisions I have made and I haven't looked back!

Vikki’s Experience

Change of Preferred Supplier
  • Business Consultant to Government
  • Age 37 with partner and two young kids
  • Wants to take some time out for family
Change of Preferred Supplier
close

Hi, I am Vikki. I am 37 and have two wonderful kids, Jack and Lilly. I have been working part-time, 3 days a week at a consulting firm. My partner, Scott, works in IT and has been flat out on some big projects lately with lots of travel. We have been finding it hard to juggle things with the kids recently, so when I found out my role was being made redundant due to our firm losing a big government contract I was both upset and a bit relieved at the same time. I had only been with my company for 3 years so I didn't get a big package, but it is enough to keep us going for a while until I figure out what comes next for me.

Vince’s Experience

  • No commitments
  • Wants to see the world
Call Center Moving Offshore
close

Hey there, Vince here, I am 25 and I lost my job recently at a call centre when the company decided to send jobs overseas. I get that it is cheaper to do that, but it is really hard for people my age to find a new roles sometimes. I didn't go to uni, but I have worked hard and was managing a team in the outbound call department. Tough role, but I really liked the team I worked with. I have decided to siege the day and take some time off to travel for a few months before I start to search for my next role. I have always wanted to see South America, so now's my chance. I am single, and sharing a house with some friends, so it was pretty easy for me to take off for a while.

We have been going through a lot of change and uncertainty with the airline industry and it has really taken a toll on me and my health.

Contemplating Part-time Work
close

Hi. I am Jane. I have been working in the finance industry for my entire career and it's what I love! I have been lucky to work for some great companies and, whilst I love what I do, I am ready to take a step back in my career now and focus more on my family. My mother has had some recent health issues, and is quite elderly, so I would like to have more time to be there for her and have some time for me as well. I am still keen to work so my focus is on finding a part-time role that gave me better work life balance. I was very fortunate that my employer gave me the opportunity to explore transition options. I looked at different options, and then spoke with my manager, and she agreed to transition my current role to 3 days a week, which is perfect for me.

Hi, I am Nicole I am 28 and I have been working at a small law firm for 5 years since graduating from Law School. While I have enjoyed this role, I really am passionate about the environment and would like to change my career and work in the sustainable energy sector. It is something I have talked a lot about but now I want to make the change. I recently was made redundant along with a number of my colleagues as our firm has lost a big account. It has been hard to go through this but I am determined to turn this into a positive for me.

Glenn’s Experience

  • Needs to find full time work
Industry Closing
close

Hi. I am Glenn, 51 and I lost my job in the auto parts industry. I had worked with my employer for the last 12 years and with a competitor before that. We all knew that things were getting tough, but it was really hard to think about my future beyond the auto manufacturing industry. My partner, Gail, and I have three kids, Emma, 19, at uni and twin boys, Jack and Mitch, who are doing VEC this year. Gail works part-time as a nurse and the budget runs pretty tight sometimes. I have a mortgage of $200K to pay off, but at least I got a good package and help with changing careers.
