Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Anne Nutley from Bank of Ireland to give some advice for people considering this job:
Anyone considering this job would need to be patient, warm, a good listener and customer focused. However in the long run what you need most of all is common sense.
If you are considering returning to the work force don't sell yourself short. Remember all the life experience you have acquired rearing a family and running a household.
Believe in yourself and go for it!
