Careering into Motherhood

Official group description:

I’m Jane and 4 years ago I literally went careering into motherhood. Between the Clear Blue stick and the Baby Shower, no-one actually put a helpful hand on my shoulder and said “Errrr….any thoughts on what you’ll do about your career?”

I’ve set up a recruitment business that helps working mothers find real jobs, that use their experience and qualifications and offer some aspect of flexibility. But we are inundated with applications and just do not have enough clients, to help everyone (we are working on that though).

So in the meantime I’ve set up Careering Into Motherhood. The objective is to share some of what we are learning as we talk to employers, the resources available to help you find flexible work, to support and enable more seriously, super-qualified mothers to have meaningful conversations with employers about the value they can bring…yep, despite also being parents.

Freelance PRs

Official group description:

Freelance working can be liberating. But it can also be lonely. I don’t mean that you’ve got no friends to socialise with, most PRs and Copywriters I know are very gregarious. But when you get a new brief, who do you run your ideas past? How do you know if the ideas are any good if you’ve only run them past your kittens and your Mum (who will always say (respectively) ‘prrr’ and ‘well done darling’).

What else? Oh when your computer mucks up and you’re on your own with deadlines zooming by. When you’re feeling unwell, you still have to drag yourself in. Accountancy, tax, all the bits that Gwyneth Paltrow never had to do in Sliding Doors when she gracefully set up her own PR agency and launched a restaurant with flowers in her hair.
