So much has happened this week, most of it within 24 hours.
I used to work at i-level, until Thursday when it closed its doors. We were only told just before noon on Wednesday and the next 24 hours seem to be a blur. It was a mixture of packing up our things, making sure all client work was transferred, finding new jobs. On Thursday, different agencies came to i-level to introduce themselves and i-level staff were very helpful in passing on HR contacts at other companies, client side as well.
I had not been working long at i-level, less than a year, so no redundancy pay for me. I had been working on some big clients and was enjoying seeing positive effects of my seo labour. I was also working closely with the paid search team and we were delivering an integrated search strategy which I wanted to see out. Unfortunately, that was not to be the case.
I have met a lot of interesting and clever people at i-level. They should not be out of work for too long as I am sure they will be snapped up very quickly. Good Luck to all you levellers, may you find rewarding work and may the company recognise how lucky they are to have you in their team.
