Dear Unlucky Dube, Disappointing, I'm sure. Redundancy, even where the individual's faults or great skills are not considered, is always a blow to the ego. In your new post ( and it is surely a complement to you that the company chose to invite you back in, as they surely didn't have to do that ) is it actually a part of your current job description that people should bring questions and requests for help to you ? Or has the nature of your post and how others are supposed to relate to it, also changed ?
Maybe in your new post, if you say you're not ( at present ) good at it, that in itself is a good reason for people not to come to you with problems they also have with that aspect of the company's work. But maybe the company should provide you with more training to help you het new skills for the new post.
And as Unique suggests, in fact whatever field you're in, use your experience and wisdom to work out what the next big thing nor things will be, and prepare yourself to be a local hero in those fields when they arrive.
