I work in Operations Management in the charity sector but my qualifications come from another country and are mainly business related degrees aside from some certificates in health and safety, first aid etc. These would also not be legally applicable in a UK setting. I have an excellent range of experience in my CV (over ten years managerial experience over a range of portfolios) but feel my employability is hindered because I do not have education / experience in CQC requirements, UK health and safety, as well as a health and social care diploma. Would you agree that these are necessary to get managerial jobs in charities in the UK? I have studied short courses in UK employment law and basic health and safety but I was thinking of doing an IOSH course as that may be more credible? Or should I focus on getting a health and social care diploma first? Should I aim for level 5 or higher? Can anyone recommend training institutions for CQC? I have googled but the organisations that come up seem to only do on site training. Are there any other qualifications or courses you could recommend that I haven't mentioned? Many thanks. PS, my background has been working with older persons, managing residential facilities but I am not committed to necessarily remaining in that sector. I wouldn't mind trying new sectors.
