A week ago we found out (by accident) that DH may have to re-apply for his job (he is what is considered a Temporary contractor with the Qld State Government in a front line role. Contractor in this case does not mean what it usually means. He is paid a Salary with sickleave, annual leave and Long service leave just like a permanent staff member. He has just had "continuation of employment" contracts for 4 years now- same continual role) sorry for the speil, needed to clarify before people come on saying he is "just on contract" ......not that simple.
Anyway, today it was confirmed that they have to reapply for their jobs. There is no guarantee they will get it (HR are extremely dodgy). DH has been acting in higher positions and is very highly regarded in the service but this means nothing.
I am trying desperately to put on a brave face for him, telling him it will be fine but inside I feel sick to my stomach with worry. It may mean I have to look for full'time work (I REALLY don't want to do that as I love my job) I just want this all to be over.
I am a practical person and need lists and plans to cope with the anxiety. So hit me with your practical solutions. I have updated both our resumes....what else?
