I have always had a steady career in the contract/local authority sector in area manager positions. Since 1988 I was employed for a local authority as an area manager providing school meals. My problem is that I resigned in August 2001 because my wife wanted to return to Ireland. I have now been out of work since arriving there and finding any suitable work is difficult. I am 52 years old and am now contemplating returning to the UK. I feel that resigning has become a barrier, even though I can provide references from my previous employer. How best can I sell myself in order to resume my career? I have attached a copy of my CV for information and comment.
