Happy New Year to everybody.
One of my goals for 2018 is to get back into employment. I have lots of experience in IT, designing and developing multi-user systems, mainly for financial houses and mainly in central London. There's no reason why I couldn't do the same kind of job, or something similar, once again.
Of course, largely because of the stroke, I have a few constraints. In the first place, I think my body would need more-than-a-weekend to recover each week, so I'm looking for something part-time rather than full-time. Second, as a result of the stroke I no longer drive, so my universe has contracted. It would be nice to do something from home, but realistically I can travel into the centre of my nearest city (Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK).The bus also places a constraint on when I can work, as there is no service on Sundays or in the evening.
I haven't worked since the stroke, but have a CV from just prior to that at https://www.jobserve.com/gb/en/Candidate/DownloadCV/32452688032B7DFB8D95.docx
If anybody is able to help, please get in touch with me.You can use the email address on this page, or the address on my CV.
BEFORE YOU START: Please note that although I currently volunteer for both the Stroke Association and Age UK, the views expressed in this blog are strictly my own. I am not a spokesperson for either (or, indeed, for any) organisation. I am based in the UK and the blog therefore has a UK bias - I've tried to use the Glossary to explain any terms which might be ambiguous, but if you think there is anything I've missed, please message me. Lastly, you'll find typos here, although I do my best to correct them. There are reasons for this, which you'll discover as you read.
