    Default Coming back full time:(

    Due to my employer being very inflexible I had to come back full time Its impossible to find part time work in my industry and I don't feel happy about my career progression or salary but really don't have a choice as we need the money however little it is plus it's good to have a foot in the door, I'm afraid if I quit it'll be so much harder finding something in couple of years! I'm thinking of changing the industry but after applying for couple of months I don't get many replies even from entry level jobs! Thinking of re-qualifying too just not sure into what... I just feel so frustrated and stuck that my poor baby has to go to childcare 5 days a week((( anyone else in similar situation?

    Oh no

    What business reasons did they give for refusing your part-time request and are they reasonable?

    They didn't give much of a reason, just said as I work closely with people in the office and needed full time

    Tv/broadcast I'm considering changing but even with entry level roles people don't seem to be too interested. I'm thinking of getting a diploma in something that has part time work ie childcare

    Doesn't sound like valid business reasons to me! I'd challenge it if I were you. They also have to respond to your request in writing setting out the reasons they are refusing.

    You would have thought they'd be more flexible but nope. The pay is pretty poor too, young people are queuing up to work for peanuts and long hours. Not sure what to do yet I'll have to talk to fair work and see what they say
