The Career Mums site helps mothers make a successful transition to the next stage of their working life.
Career Mums is a successful social enterprise, inspired by the struggle its founders experienced finding employment after taking career breaks. Its founders knew that if they were struggling there must be many women like them who were struggling to find meaningful work that fitted alongside family responsibilities.
They felt that the world of work didn’t embrace the flexible needs of working parents and they weren’t being welcomed back with open arms despite their qualifications, previous work experience and achievements.
They believe that there are seeds of change but there are many more things employers can do to become more inclusive and attractive for returners, parents and carers.
