Workingmums.co.uk was founded by senior communications manager Gillian Nissim in 2006 after the birth of her second child. She found herself and many of her friends in a similar position, needing flexible yet challenging work, but not being able to find it. She decided to bridge the gap between those employers who were able to offer flexibility, whether that was full-time work with flexi hours or some homeworking or part-time work or any other form of flexible working, and parents who were seeking flexible positions.
The site now has a database of over 320,000 candidates and works with thousands of employers from large corporates to micro companies. It’s certainly worth checking out for the opportunities the site presents for mums looking to get back to work.
