Rachel Morgan-Trimmer, founder of thecareerbreaksite.com, said that there are some people who are less likely to take a career break at the moment because they are afraid of not being able to find another job.
However, there are also people who have been made redundant who are using the opportunity to take a career break and help to put something on their CV that will set them apart, she noted.
"We always tell people that when you have had a career break to put that on the top of your CV, because that makes your CV different from most of the other applications that the employers are going to get," the expert explained.
She spoke of many people having taken a career break and then being promoted when they get back, because they had the experience of things such as teamwork, communication or even language skills.
Beverley Woodhams, head of central recruitment at the University of Greenwich, recently said that it is important that people show off their specific areas of interest on their CV, as well as pointing out any work they have done that may have set them apart from their peers.
