So which one was it?
Mat leave, Pat leave or an extended Career Break... it doesn't matter which really, the recruitment industry as well as direct employers can take a dim view of 'returners' at times, so we thought we better start promoting the great companies who do value the skills and experience that you have accrued over the years.
We intend to spend the next year Spotlighting 12 great industries that you can re-skill in to, or use skills that you already have - to apply for the best jobs within that sector as a returning parent.
Our sector sponsors also have the most flexible roles & great family benefits.
We really hope that you will enjoy this month's issue of Spotlight.
We will continue to launch our new industry sectors suitable for 'Returners' and 'Family Focused' mums and dads across the UK & Ireland.
Our ALL NEW sections will offer the latest flexible, full, part, job share and contract roles as well as some excellent online training courses to help you re-skill and refresh both yourself and your CV so that you are ready to apply!
Speaking of applying, we have our CV Knowhow team on standby to give you some free CV advice and if your feeling especially lazy they will completely overhaul or write it for you, for a very well spent £99!
We also have a great video giving you hints, tips and last minute confidence before that all important interview - waiting for you just below...
There is also a bucket load of blogs offering moral support, success stories and an all round good read for any Mum or Dad looking to return to the workplace.
If there is something missing that you need for your journey back to work, then drop us a line and we will do our best to get it for you!
