Career breaks and deciding to return to work
Returning to work can be overwhelming, especially if you have been off for a long time.
Everyone’s journey is different and it’s becoming more common for people to take breaks in their careers and return to work after a few months or even years away from the workplace. With a bit of planning and preparation you can return back to work.
Why do people take career breaks?
There are many reasons why people take career breaks. Parents take time to care for babies and children, childcare costs are high so it doesn’t make sense to put children in full time care.
Another reason for career breaks is the need to care for an elderly or ill family member such as parents. Some people in the UK are caring both for children and older family members which becomes a huge responsibility.
Many people have started taking career breaks to have a time out from work and travel or work on themselves and their mental health.
Sadly and often unwanted, career breaks can brought upon by redundancy or unemployment, which can cause a loss in confidence and well being.
