Job cuts in the north-east oil and gas market have been an increasing occurrence recently.
As businesses strive to survive in a competitive market they may have to make essential changes such as organisational re-structuring and outsourcing of work.
This has an impact on the employees, who may find themselves in redundancy situations and looking for new jobs.
This can be a challenging time for many; particularly those who feel out of touch with the recruitment market or those who have a specialist skill set and aren’t sure what their options may be.
