Let’s Talk Redundancy: Stuck in the Middle with Marco Beschizza
Although it may be less widely spoken about, it’s critical to remember that there are people at every stage of their redundancy journey. You are not the only one still trying to find a job, there is no transfer window, you have not missed the deadline.   In Episode 16 we return to our ‘Let’s Talk: Redundancy’ interview series and are joined by the wonderful Marco Beschizza – at the time of recording he is still very much in the ‘Messy Middle’ of his story after being made redundant in April 2020.   As yet another reminder that redundancy can hit at any level and any age – Marco is an experienced Global Head of Visual Merchandising & Creative in the retail industry.   Previously he’s progressed from national to international brands and has been leading teams and designing visuals to drive sales across the globe for years.   Marco’s redundancy story starts with being on mute on a call with 900 people and hearing they’ve all been made redundant. This was understandably a fair shock, especially for a manager familiar with the ‘traditional’ process!   Sitting now in what I call the ‘Messy Middle’, Marco and I talk about: Redundancy during furlough and a company saleThe difference when you have a teamRetail Life vs Real LifeFiguring out your financialsHandling the awkward silence from a recruiters   If you enjoyed this episode or it inspired you then we'd love to know - Take a screenshot, share it on LinkedIn and tag us both!   You can find this episode’s Podcast on a Page, and so much more over at

Redundancy. It’s a big topic for a lot of people at the moment.   This episode is the first in a series of interviews exploring redundancy and what it means for different people. Every story is unique, whether you’re at the very beginning, in the messy middle, or are now embarking on something new – there is no right or wrong way to do it!   Being made redundant, especially when it’s unexpected, can make you feel lost, taken aback and unsure of what to do next. However, it is sometimes when all of our safety nets are taken away that we finally take that leap of faith into the unknown. Jon’s redundancy story is a wonderful example of exactly that.   In this episode we are joined by the fantastic Jon Seymour who kindly shares with us how he tackled his own redundancy. Showing us that it is sometimes when all of our safety nets are taken away that we finally take that leap of faith into the unknown.   Whether you are going through, or have been through a redundancy, or even if you’ve never encountered redundancy, I know many different aspects of these interviews will resonate with you and provide you with some invaluable insights and inspiration to take away.   As we talk through Jon’s journey we will cover: What comes next (& there’s a lot of choices you can make here!)Looking at the Support Circles you have around you.Reframing your own personal idea of what success looks like.And long-term vs short-term short term planning.   If you enjoyed this episode or it inspired you, then we'd love to know - Take a screenshot, share it on LinkedIn and tag us both!   You can find this episode’s Podcast on a Page and so much more over at
