Open Study College, which offers adults the opportunity to study new qualifications from home, said: “As we pass milestones in life, our priorities and goals can change. “For some people, having a family is the most important thing to them, and they’re happy to let their careers take a back seat.“For others, the exact opposite is true – they want to continue excelling in their careers, and will let others help more in terms of raising the family.“Of course, it is possible to have both, which is why being in the right career or even the right company is really key.”The study also found 44% of respondents want an easy commute after returning to work post-child.But 57% claim their work priorities didn’t change after having their first child.And of those whose life goals did shift, 48% no longer wanted to work long hours, while 44% were finished with working at weekends.Nearly a third (31%) changed career after returning to work after having children, with many moving into a health or social care role.And while the study revealed the roles adults feel are good for working parents, it also uncovered the jobs deemed bad for a work-life balance.Top of the list was being a police officer, due to all the paperwork and late shifts officers have to get through, according to the OnePoll figures.This was followed by lawyers, journalists, and security guards, while 28% believe being a surgeon isn’t a particularly family-friendly role.Open Study College’s spokesman added: “The roles in our list are what respondents consider un-family-friendly careers.“That’s certainly not to say there aren’t positions in the police or event management that wouldn’t be suitable for those with kids.“In fact, as the lists show, many consider events.
