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.
