I received a letter saying my post had been made redundant

I really admire your stand on this as it happened to me 7 years ago. I was due to return to work at a Further Education college after maternity leave with my second child. I was previously working 4 days per week, although in reality still doing a full time job. Once my mat leave finished I was using up some accrued annual leave before returning to work and during this period I received a letter saying my post had been made redundant. I was offered a new role, however it was more senior and only available on a full time basis! As a mum to a one year old and 3 year old I was not wanting to take on more responsibility at work and did not want to work full time. I was therefore left with no option but to resign. I hope sharing my story helps you highlight the difficulties that women face trying to hold down a career with motherhood.
