If you are interested in health and possibly office admin. What about a job as a ward clerk or medical receptionist. The best of both worlds!

I can speak from experience in applying for medical receptionist roles. You definitely need experience. I have 8 years doing outpatients reception and call Centre work and even I can't get a medical admin job!! I know work in a government department call Centre casually.

OMG so many choices! My head is spinning (but don't stop with the suggestions)
@ProudMumma34 that's exactly what I'm afraid of. I've been looking at job ads and it's all experience experience experience. I dread sinking $$$ & time into study and then not be able to get work.

You don't even have to be that involved but you'd meet the people who do it, get involved in the workplace and just get a general idea of whether or not it's an industry with a lot of jobs or not.

I had another thought. What about a dental nurse? I don't think the study is that long and I always see jobs advertised.

Thanks @Truffle, not a bad idea. I'll add it to the list. @Best Things volunteering is a great thing to do, and I have looked into it and can see the benefits. I just don't think it's the right time for me to commit to atm. I've given myself until the end of this year to get my health in order, to get the house running efficiently and to decide on what I will do in the future. Volunteering means a commitment for 6 or 12 months, I'm just not ready for that yet. I don't want to let anyone down, or overcommit myself and fall apart.

I reckon do what you did for medical admin jobs. Look up job ads for careers your interested in and see what they ask for.
I've had 4 job interviews for actual outpatient roles and I still didn't get anything! And I'd only been out of my job for 9 months!
Maybe try government department roles? They are family friendly and there's stuff out there that's casual. Where I work I didn't even have a face to face interview. I just did a phone interview and got called when a position became available. It kinda hurt because I've got 15 years worth of admin/customer service experience and an 18 year old fresh out of high school got the same job as me....so there is stuff out there. Just have to do a lot of searching
