Career change was the best decision of my life
After working as a civil servant for 25 years, I knew I needed a change. My job had become the most stressful it had ever been. My daughter is a support worker, and one day, she asked me to keep her company at a recruitment evening. I had no intention of applying for a job, I simply went for moral support. I’d always envied my daughter’s job role and how much satisfaction she got from her work. She knew it was something I’d talked about wanting to do, but I never had the courage to do anything about it.
