Personally, if I was happy in my role and being forced to another position I would protest, to the point Iíd quit and find alternative employer doing what I enjoyed.
I think you'd find, public or private, you'd have little say in the matter, and I'm sure that most of us that are good at their job have been in this position more than once.

Obviously, you have a choice whether or not to resign.

Typically at Sky you get redundancy or choice of a new/different role, if your current position is removed. Not sure on moving you, Iím lucky with tech, donít recall anyone being forced to change in 8.5 years here.

Think my contract is way out of date though, 3 month notices are standard for years. Iím still on one month. Wonder how else mine differs!

IME, its typically when its felt you would better fit another role, rather than your role disappearing ;)

Or a vacancy arises that really needs filling, and your team could manage with one less. In the eyes of management that is.

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

Hummm. Not so sure here, Sky can be brutal and cut departments or management line.

Remember load of Product Owners sat behind me years ago, all 12 cut in one go.

Indeed, and if you have a manager who's on the ball he should already know if this would be something you'd welcome or likely regard as a sh*t sandwich. If the latter, he should have spoken up for you when discussing the possibilities with his superiors.

How it's presented can make all the difference too. Presenting it as more hassle being dumped on you because they CBA to hire someone new is never going to win you over, especially if you don't find the extra work interesting. ;D
