The school I work in is making people redundant and have asked for voluntary redundancies first of all, and will then possibly look in to compulsary redundancies. I have been offered a Job in the independent sector and my question is would it be possible to ask for voluntary redundancy and then take up my post in the independent school sector. I have not resigned from my current post yet but its widely known that I have been offered a new job. I am not sure but I think that if I meet the criteria for voluntary redundancy then its irrelevant that I already have a job lined up. Any ideas?
