Bumping can sometimes be a useful way of helping our members leave their employer and at the same time retaining another member who would otherwise have been made redundant.
Here's a little bit of information on bumping and how we can help:
- Bumping is a process that some employers use to try and match people who have been selected for redundancy and wish to remain in employment, with others that would like to voluntarily leave.
- You don't have to be doing the same role as the 'bumper' in order to be considered for bumping. But there must be a significant job match along with some other criteria.
- Register with us your bumping preference, only do this if you're not currently at risk of redundancy. If you've already been told you're being made redundant contact your local Accord officer.
- Once you've registered with us, we'll keep you in mind when supporting other members to remain in the business. Registering with us is not a guarantee that you'll be contacted, but please do let us know if any of your information changes such as a new role or a significant increase in salary or your grade.
We can't guarantee that you will be matched with another member, but we can reassure you that we will review any potential matches when we can and we'll be in touch if we believe there is a suitable match available.
