The Government Equalities Office has published a new toolkit for those returning to work after a career break.
The Government Equalities Office has published a toolkit to help people who have taken a career break to look after family members to get back to work.
The toolkit, developed with Women Returners and Timewise, has been designed as a roadmap that takes
readers through every stage of the return-to-work process.
It is aimed at anyone who has taken a break, whether male or female, young or old, senior or junior, and no matter what industry or occupation they worked in previously or how long a career break has been. It includes people who have not been working during their break, but also those who may have taken a lower-paid, part-time, temporary or self-employed role to fit around their caring responsibilities and now want a job which is more in line with their skills and experience.
Workingmums.co.uk has developed its own free back to work toolkit, based on the best expert tips published by workingmums.co.uk over the last 12 years. It includes how to present any career gaps you may have, how to negotiate flexible working before, at or after interview and how to build your confidence if it has taken a dent as a result of a career break.
