    Redundancy or alternate position which one should I choose?

    The company with which I have worked for the last 6 years recently merged with a sister concern and a lot of reshuffle is going on. I have been working as a accounts manager and not I am being offered a job on site which will involve longer working hours but the pay is same. I am not happy with the situation, can i ask for voluntary redundancy?

    Hi friend

    If you are not satisfied with your new position then ofcourse you should not take it up. If you will not work with all your heart then ofcourse your work position will not be good and then there will be no fun in working for you. Also you will not be satisfied with your job and thus will not be able to fully concentrate on your work. If your company can give you some other good position then you should take it up otherwise it would be better for you to search another job for yourself.

    Such things happen with many people so you should not get demoralized for the same. Firstly you should see that whether your company allows you to take voluntary redundancy or not. If the company provides you with such a facility then its ok, you should definitely avail this facility and serve your notice period before leaving your job. But if your company doesn't provide you with this facility its better you give your resignation and leave this company and find a new job for yourself.That option will also be open for you and you can resign anytime you want.

    But you should certainly not take up this job as it will not be good for your future. So you try to explore more opportunities and I am sure God has surely thought of something better for you. My advice for you would be not do anything under pressure from your company or others, Try to think with your own mind and do something which will be better for your future. Good luck friend.

    Thanks

    Voluntary redundancy in your case means resigning.
    Since they have already allocated you a new job profile within the company with same salary benefits they will not give you anything extra even if you resign.

    So, if you are not happy with your current role, than first find a job for yourself.
    Without finding a new job, do not resign.
    It is very diffiult to find new jobs in the market these days with more number of eligible candidates and less number of jobs.
