Oh, definitely. You'd be surprised how much IT companies value personality and cultural fit. It took me too long to figure this out in my career. When I started thinking about how I could be a part of the team instead of proving how I was smarter than everyone else, my career greatly improved.

And I share HP's hope that DW* can figure it out. He wasn't looking for work before that we know of, so maybe ending up in a homeless shelter has caused him to rethink his life. If he's serious about getting employment, any job advice centers are going to tell him the same things we did. Maybe it'll sink in. Sometimes it takes a traumatic event to get a person to change from a destructive path. I'm pessimistic, given the severe combination of outdated skills and bad personality he has to overcome, but I'm willing to offer encouragement.

* - side note: I'm not calling him "Baron" anymore, not even sarcastically, or as part of an acronym. If he wants to recover from the mess he's made of his life, letting go of this meaningless label would be a positive step.

He definitely needs to start doing something soon, even if it's 1 day a week voluntary work.
That 10 year chasm in his employment history will scare off a lot of potential employers, and the ones who aren't will ask awkward questions about it.
Also as noted by others on here, his ICT skills are out of date by a fair few years; the majority of companies will have migrated away from XP by now. These days he would encounter Windows 7 or newer on a corporate desktop and Server 2008 or newer on a corporate server.
So refreshing his MS certifications and/or getting voluntary work experience on those systems would be highly beneficial if he wants to re-enter the ICT support sector.

His CV should be shorter, no more than a double-sided sheet of A4. The advice I was given back when I was unemployed is to keep employment history down to the last 10 years as anything older than that usually isn't relevant to most sectors.
Obviously his 10 year gap makes this difficult. But if I were him I'd trim his down to the stuff from 2000 onward.

Again his education history should be trimmed down to the stuff that's relevant to what he's applying for.

It does rather remind me of the Frank Spencer advert where he uses to standard comedic method of taking a long advert then cutting parts out leaving a comedy final product. Frank's advert went into how he was a handyman, available at all times, no job too small, willing to travel etc. After serious editing, it reads: "I am a man. Distance no object."

Either way, his resume shouldn't focus on it. At his age, and the jobs he wants to get, it's more about skills and work experience. Which aren't bad, but are horribly out of date. He needs to bring his industry certifications current, and be willing to accept a lower-level job until he does.

Well radio silence has been broken.

Firstly, he's still a Baron unless he's addressing his bank (TSB) in which case its just plain old David A Ward, I find that vaguely disappointing somehow.

Secondly his war on his ex wife and her solicitors continues, he wants his seven grand;

Dear Carol Net
Regarding the correspondence we received from you on the 11th Day on November 2016. It is clear that these funds were not transferred to Santander (UK) plc to settle the claim from Santander as Santander has now formally repossessed 145 Slater Street. It is therefore conclusive that these funds of £7,010.99 are still in the possession of Fiona Bruce Solicitors LLP.
In the interests of candour and diplomacy we feel that it would not be appropriate for us to attend your office in person. However there is still the matter of transferring these funds. As we are in temporary accommodation we have not as yet informed the TSB Bank of this temporary accommodation as it is temporary accommodation. However to facilitate the transfer of these funds by way of formal identification we have received correspondence from HMR&C which formally confirms our current address which is enclosed. This should satisfy one of the two formal requirements confirming our current address.
Photo identification is provided by way of formal photo Driving Licence which only leaves the remaining details of the Bank to transfer the funds to which is the TSB Bank. Sort Code, @@-@@-@@. Account number. @@@@@@@@ in the name of MR DAVID A WARD. See enclosed.
We await your response.

I am trying to recall any feudal baron in England's history who, once his lands were forfeited, resolved to carry on with his baronry from the back of a wagon. I am failing at this, but English feudal history was not one of my fortes.

It sounds like he is still real unclear on what happened with the divorce and the mortgage endowment funds. I'm not sure the lawyer would want him thee with out security being present as he isn't going to like the answers he gets. I don't think he has figured out that he may not be getting anything out of the deal.

Baron von New Age Traveller more like. He's going to need £7k to buy a decent truck and insure it but the solicitors will try to sit on the money until a final settlement is reached. A normal person could go to court and make a case for getting some or all of the money, but I'd suspect the Baron either won't or would "shoot himself in the foot" if he went to court.
Also, I hope he passed his driving test long enough ago that he has the 7.5t entitlement. Oh, and it's a pain in the thingy to insure a vehicle when you haven't got a fixed address.

Wouldn't the mortgage company have had first claim on the endowment money to begin with?

I have every faith in Baron Boring's ability to shoot himself in the foot repeatedly, he has done so for a very long time, and I don't see any reason to expect otherwise from him.

There's a suitable truck advertised along the road from us, a postcard in the feed merchants. Horsebox lorry with living area, cooker, plumbing etc and cab accessible. Two problems, it's the opposite end of the country, and he'd need to pay for it.

Someone will probably give fuller details but my recollection is that is how it used to be decades ago but something in the law or case history changed it such that the mortgage company couldn't insist on getting the money at the end of the term. Depending on the when and the details of the endowment it may just be money in the pot to be distributed after divorce agreement.

He'd also need to tax, insure and put fuel in the thing, and single figures mpg isn't unusual.

In one of DW's voluminous packets of information, there's a letter in which he is paid his share of the endowment policy.
