So you are still employed by them?
Are you willing to accept that new role?
If you take up this role whilst still employed by them, it would be deemed that you have accepted suitable alternative employment, which means you should not be getting redundancy pay as you would no longer be made redundant.
If you were to leave first and then later on get re-employed in a different role, there is nothing in law which says exactly how long a break you must have before it is considered ‘safe’ in terms of your redundancy payment. If this was a Local Government role and you moved between two such roles, there is a law which says a month must pass before you can keep the redundancy from the first one. That is a good starting point for any other role as well, however it does not stop HMRC potentially looking into whether a redundancy payment should have been paid and if there is anything untoward about it. It is rather rare that such things happen but it is a possibility, so even a month may sometimes not be enough, but generally it should be sufficient.
