It was strange today to do the payroll for my company, and to issue myself with a P45.
After 18 years of self-employment/being my own boss it will be strange to join a large organisation again next Monday and I'm sure there'll be things for me to adjust to as I transition from one set of working practices to another; but I feel blessed today that my temporary unemployment is a choice and that I have an exciting new role to get my teeth into next week.
It's made me spare a thought though for those people who have recently received P45s with nowhere to move to.
Hopefully my future work with senior teams to improve the maturity of their risk-taking practices will create more opportunities and jobs as wasteful spend created by poor decisions is decreased.
