Redundancy & Covid-19

Hi all, 

I recently learnt that my role was to be made redundant and the vacancy was to be filled in Poland. I had a one-week consultation period within which I could consider other internal roles, however these weren't desirable so I left the company on 5th May. To my knowledge, the role in Poland is yet to be filled. 

Given the circumstances, finding another job is already proving to be problematic with most roles being placed on hold. Having not been placed on a furlough, I'm curious about my options (if any) in this situation. 

Any information would be much appreciated.

    As they have made you redundant, in practice it is hardly likely your previous employer would agree to place you on furlough, it would actually cost them money.

     Except for asking to be put on furlough or asking if the job has not been filled in Poland that you would be willing to do it until it was then not a lot you can do. The only thing you can really do is look at one of the benefits calculators to see if anything you are entitled to.
