I am an existing employee and was offered the opportunity to retire and continue working for the company on a consulting agreement for 18 months plus 6 months notice period at 75% of my current hours with renumeration covering my current full salary, benefits and bonuses. This agreement was previously offered and accepted by another employee. This offer was made back in May. I have been trying since to get the agreement for review and today have been informed the offer is being reduced to 6 months plus 6 months notice.
I am advised that another Senior Manager has not approved it internally and has stated that long term consulting contracts do not generally work and that they will struggle to get the budget approved to replace me with such a longterm agreement. I am still employed in the substantive post.
Yes I can remain in the role
