Qurab's voice

Qurab tells of her passion for the care industry after spending seven years caring for her daughter.

The 54-year-old describes her experience of returning to work on a part-time basis with flexible working hours.

Qurab, a 54-year-old native of Oldham, Greater Manchester, feels very passionate about the care industry.

Eight years ago, her daughter suffered a severe asthma attack and cardiovascular attack, which left her with a severe brain injury.

At the time, both Qurab and her husband were working full time, and Qurab had to leave her job as a finance manager to care for her daughter.

Her employer later enabled her to come back to work part-time on reduced hours. With the benefit of flexible working, she had the opportunity to return to work whilst managing her caring responsibilities.
