Vocations on CV

Question: Since I stopped working in Jan, I have been a full time dad so that my wife could settle into her new job after 7 years at home, I’ve done some ad-hoc consulting and C# coding to integrate a restaurant payment system to the company’s accounting package, worked two 1/2 days per week in the local primary school and spent 10 hours a week volunteer counselling people who experience mental illness and have suicidal thoughts or tendencies.

So… what, if any of this, should I put on my CV? I’ve always been an all rounder and “T-shaped individual”, and that’s my strength, but I fear such a diverse set of skills leaves me vulnerable to not being understood or being seen as relevant when sometimes only judges me by the words on my CV.

Ask any project manager about the key to their success, and they will say that delivering a project is often more like a "dark art" or by chance, than a predictable science.

They may also say that a project going 'off the rails' was one of the most stressful things they have professionally experienced. And unfortunately, it’s all too common.
