    Reports of his death were greatly exagerrated. He's now a ghost.

    For all those on the bench, looking for work, you have my empathy. I've had periods like that and I didn't like it. Look after yourselves in these trying times

    Depending on how quickly you find a job, you might find being benched now more profitable than not... CJRS and payment holidays etc!

    All these coronavirus schemes are a little confusing haven't looked into them until now.

    Would I be eligible for CJRS? Ltd. director, but I take my monthly wage via payroll so am I technically not an "employee"?

    Edit: did some reading and looks like I may be able to but seems the cut off is 10th June.
