After being made redundant while on maternity leave, I was struggling to find a job.
Years of experience in corporate, vet nursing, retail, meant nothing as I have no formal qualifications.
After taking my daughter to swimming lessons, I realised I wanted to work with children As a swim teacher.
it’s taken . Months of unpaid training to get my austswim certificate and now I finally have a shift next term.
I am also trying to get my babies and toddlers certificate too.
I so excited.
I am 41 and want you all to know it’s never to late to change careers.
Thank you for reading my story
