Currently I am unemployed, I've just completed a 3 year course in childcare and have got my NVQ3, trouble is its hard getting a job working with children, I guess its because I'm a male no one wants to know and the pay is pretty bad. I used to work for London Transport on customer services but it became too stressful what with the continual complaints and abuse you get on the phones, that's why I made a big gamble and gave it up to learn something new.

I think it is not fair that you are finding it hard to find work, having an NVQ3 is a high qualification, and it must of took a lot of hard word to get it. Do not give up, I am sure that the right job will come along, I have no worrys about a male looking after my children as long as they are properly qualified. I don't blame you leaving a call centre, I used to work in a similar thing and the phones were still ringing in my ears when I left. I was glad to leave. Keep trying, things always work out in the end. :)
