Time out of work(3 Posts)
Hello All, So I am 30 years old mom to 1.5 year old boy and baby no 2 is on the way ( I am just few weeks pregnant). Because of having a small child and addition to our family in a 9 months time ,we decided with my partner that it would be the most logical (financial and emotional wise) thing for me to stay at home and not to return to work for a while. In total it could be at least 2 more years to stay out of job market. To be honest, I love idea of being at home with my children, but at the same time I understand that in a few years time I will want/ need to get a job. Now, I have accountancy degree and 2 years of work experience. So , my question to all of you is, what would you advice me to do during 2 years while I am at home to improve CV and skills (e.g any courses or anything else) so it would be easier to find a job when I am ready? Before anyone says, I understand it is not going to be easy with 2 little children, but to be honest , nothing is easy in life , and for sure I will be able to find few spare hours during the week to spend just to myself. I will really appreciate your advise or if you can share your story if you have ever been in similar situation to mine. P.s apologies for my writing errors, english is not my native language.

Does an accountancy degree with 2 years experience make you part-qualified? How many more years would it take
to get to qualified status and could you do some of that studying whilst you’re not working?
