In my current employment I am being 'frozen out' by the business managers, to a point where I am now almost incidental to the role I should be playing. These sort of things happen, and I've been told this is a tactic they have employed before.
I'm wondering how best to handle this. Given the personalities involved the idea of a mature discussion is unlikely to materialise.
Should I walk away? I'm 60 years old, so getting another permanent job is going to be tough. I work in IT and over here in the UK the contractor market remains quite buoyant.
I'm also worried about how to explain this situation in an interview. Any suggestions?
