Parents returning to work

Returning to work after having children can be a daunting prospect but help is available from Skills Jersey and the Social Security department.

​If you're unsure of your career direction​​

Skills Jersey has a team of advisers who can discuss the options that are available to you and help answer any questions or concerns you may have. 

From looking at your strengths, skills and interests to discussing career matching programmes, careers advisers can also provide up to date information on opportunities and skills development.

Getting help with your CV and application forms

Skills Jersey advisers are on hand to provide advice with CVs and application forms, but you can also find a CV template and general advice online. 

If you have never done a CV before and would like to book an appointment with an adviser to go through how to complete a CV, contact the Skills Jersey reception.

If you've been out of work for an extended amount of time

If you are worried about your skills and experience, there are schemes funded by the States of Jersey that support people who are returning to work. These provide work experience placements and are a fantastic way to develop skills and experience relevant to the workplace. 

The Social Security Department also support people in returning to work. Depending on the type of job you are looking for and the level of skills, experience and qualifications you have, it may be that you need to look at skills development and / or work experience. A careers adviser will be able to talk through your options.
