Mary Portas One Life: Over To You

Mary Portas

Every week in Grazia, Mary Portas listens to one reader's life dilemma and gives her honest, straight-talking advice. Today, it's your turn to help out Grazia reader Catherine: her job has become unstable and she's been offered a new role or redundancy -- do you think it's time for her to be brave, move on and try something else, or should she play safe and stay put?
 
‘Redundancy or a new role: I don't know what to do’
Since starting as a PA, I’ve worked my way up to a good job in internal communications at the same company. But now I’ve been offered a new role during a restructuring and feel really confused – part of me worrying that I’ll be ‘found out’ because I don’t have formal qualifications in what I do, while another wonders if I should take the chance to get a good redundancy package and do something really different. But as a single parent of two young children, can I really give up a good job at a time like this?
Catherine, 41, Bristol
