    My firm let me buy my computer off them for £50 when I asked them (they bought it for far more). I made the point that with fewer people they need fewer computers and that it would have depreciated massively by the time the recession ends, and they could see I was talking sense.

    Joe the Plummer - good thing your trade doesn't involve too much writing as your post is incomprehensible! What on earth does this mean?:

  • Outplacement

    As in most things in life you get what you pay for. In times likes these some firms will try to minimise their expenditure on outplacement. I believe organisations have a moral and social responsiblity to look after its former employees to ensure they make successful career transitons.

    Furthermore helping former employees make successful career transitions will maintain their employer brand. Always ask for outplacement, ask the supplier to specify the amount of career coaching you are to be given. Remembering in this climate you will need up to 20 hours of one to one coaching to land a role or make a successful career transition. If offered outplacement aways take up the initial appointment.

  • lots of nice ideas

    At the end of the day anything else that can be recieved/taken etc has got to be good, whilst there are jobs out there the market is tough so I'd take all the help I could get.

  • Outplacement Support

    Some firms allow their employees to choose the provider of their outplacement support. At CareerBalance we offer an initial consultation at no charge if it is arranged through your employer. You can then decide if our approach and the consultant you meet suit your needs. We have two consultants who are both lawyers and have significant expertise in the legal sector.

    How about 8. Get a job as an investment banker with RBS get made redundant and get a £100K pay off from taxpayer's money then sit at home for a month or two planning how to spend said windfall then get reemployed by said bank but don't have to pay back said windfall as your job has changed ever so slightly so your original position not technically redundant! Then sapre a thought for the lawyers who have worked hard and just get their statutory entitlement.

  • Don't bother asking

    I am not sure if "blank eyed ignorance" is quite appropriate, especially given that if you run a google search using the terms "field grieb" and "law" you get....wait for it.....absolutely nothing! For a firm "punching above its weight", it really has a VERY low profile. Even the most backwards of firms have websites these days. What "real world" do you live in?
