Thanks to Covid-19 I have reached one of life's crossroads where I have a big decision to make and I am looking for some thoughts and advice on which way to go. The crux of the matter is this: My company (aerospace industry) is offering Voluntary Redundancy and I am weighing up whether to take it or not. I would walk away with a lump sum equating to just over 2 years salary. I have been unhappy at work for the last couple of years (feeling under-utilised and under-appreciated) and have yearned for change. I turn 52 this December so I still feel I have plenty to offer a prospective employer with my experience and another 12-15 years of working (I'm not one of those people who wants to retire early - I like going to work and working with people, it just hasn't been the right challenge these last couple of years). For a long time now I have just been going through the motions and taking the money - only the great people who work for me have kept me sane. But now feels like the right time to actively seek change (and take a nice sum of money which will keep me going for 2-3 years in the very worst case). I think the aerospace industry is going to struggle massively for the next 5-7 years and there are already signs that my company is centralising more and more roles in its UK centre - so my job may be gone anyway in 12 months. Just wondering if anyone has done a similar thing, or has any views or advice which might help me make my decision. Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
