I've seen a job that I'd really like to apply for - it is perfect for me; fewer hours than I'm currently doing and it's local so I'd be saving about an hours travel time every day. My problem is that I;m a carer for my mum. Currently she doesnt need that much supervision and can be left for a few hours a day (we suspect she has early dementia but this hasnt been confirmed yet.) If I apply for this job, do I admit to being a carer? This is basically the reason why I can only work part time and am applying for this job, which is 18.5 hrs a week. My mum's care needs are only going to get worse and will eventually start to impact on any job I may have. I do feel this will be a put-off to any employer. So do I mention it or just keep quiet?
