Returning to work – know your rights
You have employment rights and responsibilities when you return to work after Statutory Maternity Leave. Find out what these are and what to do if you have any problems or you are denied your rights.
The Working Families website is another source of advice for those returning to work after a career break. They also have a free legal helpline giving parents and carers advice about legal and in-work benefits, as well as helping them to negotiate the flexible hours they want.
CPD for members on a career break
If you are on a career break, such as maternity leave, you still need to maintain CPD compliance. If you have not worked in the previous year, you should make a positive declaration. If you are selected to provide evidence of your CPD compliance, you can state that there was no requirement to undertake any CPD activities that year because you were not working.
Online resources from the ICAEW Library
Are you thinking of moving into a new industry sector, or applying for a new job and need some background information?
The ICAEW Library & Information service has a wide range of online resources that you can access from your desktop.
Keeping up to date
Keeping up to date with your skills and current issues in the profession is important when you plan to return to the workplace. Here are four ideas to get you started:
ICAEW technical updates
Updated regularly, the technical area covers key developments in many sectors. It’s a great place to start when reviewing your CPD needs.
Volunteering on a project organised through the ICAEW could be a good way of getting back into the working habit. It’s good for building up confidence and your personal network of contacts and is also great for your CV.
- View our volunteering and award opportunities
- Our jobs board ICAEWjobs.com also lists voluntary roles
Join one of our specialist networks
Joining a Faculty or Special Interest Group (SIG) is a great way to build personal contacts and expand networks in specific business areas and sectors, as well as to keep up to date with technical knowledge and marketplace developments. Members who are unemployed or on a career break, can join these groups at reduced rates.
To join a group, call +44 (0)1980 248250 or email email@example.com quoting your membership. Members who are unemployed or on a career break, are eligible to join three Special Interest Groups for free.
Building and maintaining a good network of contacts can pay dividends to your career, with online social networking now playing a major role. Follow our simple guide and start building your network.
Professional support and advice
ICAEW provides expert advice and guidance on all the technical, ethical and practical aspects of your professional life, offering support via helplines and online resources.
