They won’t give you the time of day

I am in the process of looking for a job as the company I was working for is going under and they cannot take me back on after my maternity leave. I am finding that employment agencies/employers won’t give you the time of day if they find out you have a child and even more so if they realise you are on maternity leave. I didn’t expect this level of blatant discrimination.

  • I am/was in the same boat. I found a maternity leave cover position which I’m grateful for, and have been freelancing for a friend at a business I used to work in. I was applying and stating my mat leave on my cv and then not getting past the first interview, so have taken not to mentioning it, like furthering the human race is the worst thing imaginable.
