Getting into Work

Where can you find flexible work as a carer? What transferable skills do you have as a carer that make you a great employee? What rights do you have in work to request part-time work and taking time off last-minute to look after your dependant? And what about suitable childcare and care for adults?

Working Families free ‘Getting into Work’ guide equips parents and carers of dependants with disabilities that have taken time out of paid work with the confidence and guidance needed to get back into the world of work. It includes everything from CV and interview tips, to your rights at work, the pros and cons of self-employment, and guidance on finances and childcare.
