    Hi all,

    I’m wondering if anyone can give me a bit of advice or certainly point me in the right direction with regards to writing my resume? As the title suggests I’m looking at returning to work after being a SAHM for 8 years. I’ve read quite a few things online as of how to best approach writing my resume but I’m still a bit confused of how I include my parenting skills into my CV?

    Any help would really be appreciated

    I’m in a similar situation but 6 and a half years.

    I live in Yorkshire and have just signed up for this scheme which is only in Yorkshire



    but have a Google and see if there’s anything like that in your area.


    I have only been separated from my husband for 3 weeks so very daunted by this coupled with the split. Aaagh!

    How are you feeling?

    Thank you solomum and Sarah-Louise i appreciate your advice and help.

    I’m so sorry SL it’s so difficult especially in the early stages, big hugs to you 🙂

    I’ve been separated nearly a year now and I’m definitely better than I was in the beginning but I still have a long way to go. I’m starting from scratch again and that’s pretty tough at anytime in your life but with two children in tow that’s certainly a challenge.

    How are you doing?

    Funnily enough I was a SAHM for 8 years before I got my current job. So I can safelt say if I can find one you can too 😀
