Posted in education, advised to post here :-)

I am a Management Accountant by trade and have a degree in business and am a passed finalist at CIMA.
In my studies I have always enjoyed the people side and the HR modules and am considering a career change. It's a good time for me as I am a SAHM at the moment but have the time to study in preparation for going back to work.
I have had a quick look but am getting very confused about what i would need to study, specific career options etc
Is there anyone out there who can tell me if this would be an easy transition, where my current qualifications would help with further study etc or anywhere useful online to start?

Do you have any ideas about the area you'd want to work in? Training? Employment law? Recruitment?

Change management jobs could be suitable - they are often looking for people who can combine the business needs of change with the human dimension.

Have you looked at the CIPD website?

have you looked at CIPD quals? This might help you too. Id say with your present skills you could do this easily. Will depend on firm size probably....
