Finding a new job after being off work for a long time can be difficult, even if you had to be away from work due to illness or injury. No employer likes to see a large gap in the CV of someone they are thinking of employing and it may mean that you have to try that much harder to get the job you want.
If you have had an accident which was not your fault and would like to make an accident at work claim in Rhondda Cynon Taf against your employer, you may also be concerned that this will stand against you as well. Here are some ways to ensure that your injury and any compensation claim you have made does not prevent you from getting a new job.
Don’t dwell on it
When filling out an application for a new job or updating your CV, mention that you were unwell or injured for the time that you were off work and that this was why you had to leave your current job and then leave it at that. Your new employer does not need to know about any compensation claims that you have made because a compensation claim does not affect your ability to work in a new role.
You should have medical evidence that you were unable to work during the time that you were injured and if you start to volunteer as soon as you are physically able then this helps you to prove that you are willing to work and have done everything in your power to get back to work as soon as you can. Employers are always impressed by those who take initiative.
