    I am definitely under employed as I have 9 diplomas in management and 26 certifcations in total and have only had temporary operative work since moving to the UK 6 years ago. As I am a qualified operations manager with 15+ years managerial experience behind me, I find it hard to fathom how a single piece of paper (A CV) can define where you should be working. But I have bills to pay and need to work.
