Keep your hopes high, dude. I'm swamped with all of the work I have to do. Jobs are opening up. You're a smart guy, I'm sure you'll find something even if you barely tried.

Ironic that this got announced days after first figures showed economic growth and a move out of recession

Although im sure irony is not what you're after right now. Be glad that you're getting redundancy at least and that you've got fair notice and look forward to taking a fresh step in your career. Every cloud....

Don't you get paid pretty well for that though? Seems like a very skilled job.

Still too bad that you're losing your job though.
