Hello ladies. I was recently made redundant. Currently on mat. leave ( DD is 4 months old). I am hoping to find a job for when she is aged 6 months, or older- am prepared to take my time for the right job.
I would love to share experiences with anyone who is/ has been in the same boat. I know the market is tough but I am DETERMINED to get a nice new job, however long it takes!
Im in the same boat, was made redundant on mat leave, DD is now 10months old and I am struggling to find work whilst looking after her. I have no family in the area so am in a catch 22 with putting her in childcare and starting a job. The jobcentre are a big pile of uselessness who seem to just want to get me into any job when I need to be earning enough to cover childcare costs!
I think I'm about to join you. I'm getting screwed over due to mat leave- and it looks like there's not much I can do about it. I am terrified, bloody terrified. The mortgage is massive, the childcare is massive- we are in debt before the month starts. Damn young, child free people- your time will come then us old ones will take your jobs!!!!
