Thinking about my future, is there anywhere I can go to get free careers advice? I’m in my 30s my previous career doesn’t fit with kids (veterinary nursing, unpredictable, unsociable hours, low pay, high stress) , a meeting at the jobcentre with my work coach got me thinking (I’ve not got another one for some months yet as my youngest is still a baby) I said I would maybe go back into veterinary nursing (I’ve only been off the register a couple years so I’m fine to return) and she said ‘how do you think that will work out with childcare’ I know she’s right it won’t it’s the reason I left with my eldest, I was working nights and weekends and not sleeping (I would go sometimes 2or 3 days without sleep as my ex also worked full time) and that’s just not going to work as a single mum. She suggested I think about jobs I might like to do that would fit around my children. But I’m a bit lost I don’t know what I would like to do? I don’t know what jobs would be best? I am happy to retrain and go back to uni I just don’t know what I should study?! What careers do other single parents have? what skills would be useful?
