What job were you offered after a long break from employment?

I've been a SAHM for 10 years and really want to go back to work. I'm wondering what jobs people have been offered after a long break? I worked in hospitality before and have no interest in going back to it. I have no idea where to start as I have no experience and there are hardly any volunteer roles in my area.

Nobody offers anyone a job

People look at the jobs advertised

People apply

Unless you have a friend or family that can help you apply for a job

My break was 5 years- but I'd never actually worked full time (got pregnant young) I got a job as a recruitment admin, and worked my way up, 4 years on and I'm about to start hiring for my own team 😁

I believe that the DWP/ job centre can help to arrange interviews for job vacancies too
