Are you returning to work after maternity leave or considering a return following a career break? Would you like to better understand your legal rights as a working parent? Perhaps you've been off work for a while and are not sure what to say about your career break or how to structure your CV? Join us for this 90-minute workshop and have your questions answered by industry experts. Employment Law Specialist, Florence Brocklesby, and Career Expert, Kath Sloggett, are teaming up to present this friendly and informative workshop covering the legal and practical aspects of returning to work. They'll be discussing commonly encountered questions such as how to ask for flexible working and understanding your rights around shared parental leave. Plus they'll be sharing insider secrets on the best ways to find flexible roles, and tried and tested practical tips for a smooth return to work.
