  • Loss of seniority, title and responsibilities as part of restructure


    Several weeks ago my employer announced that the jobs of myself and my only UK peer would be replaced by a single job at the next higher grade of seniority and that our direct reports would also be combined in the same way but the successful candidates would be bumped up to our current grade. I was suspicious about the motivations for this as my peer works at our head office and I work in a regional office, which meant he had a much better chance of building relationships with more senior stakeholders.

    I applied and was interviewed for the more senior role but only got a 30 minute interview which was delayed by an hour less than an hour before the meeting. It was a very strange interview and I came away with the feeling that it was a tickbox exercise, not a real interview. A week later I was informed that I had not been successful but encouraged to apply for the more junior roles which would mean I would at least keep my current level of seniority.

    A few weeks passed and the same thing has happened - including the zero-notice delay. I now have no defined job or role, am no longer a manager (having previously had over 150 staff) and have been moved into a non-management grade of supposedly equal status. It's not yet clear if my salary will remain the same.

    I feel as if this was a setup to promote my peer and the company won't talk about redundancy but seems unable or unwilling to even suggest alternative roles for me. I can only assume they hope I'll get fed up and leave. I have had no negative performance feedback, informally or in formal appraisals. And all this just a few days before Christmas.

    Can anyone offer me any advice?

    Thank you.
