So, you’re a mom. Maybe you used to work. Maybe you never worked. Being a mother is a job in itself. You may be ready to return to work after having taken some time off with your child, or children. You may want to start working because let’s face it finances are a (insert bad word here)! If you are looking for work workingmums.co.uk is a great place to start!
Any way you look at it, whether you just need something to do, to get out of the house– to earn some extra cash, or to make a living. Starting your job search from your home, there are of course many places where you can do this but Working Mums is a place with mothers in mind. It’s a site created for mothers, among job listings you can find “advice and support”.
I have been lucky to find part-time work, not because I don’t need the money but because I feel like I still want to be able to spend time with my daughter; so that balance works for me. When I was looking for a job I had a very difficult time finding employers who were considerate of my desire to be home with my baby for part of the time. In my profession, I’m a paralegal, that’s not always easy to find. Add this to the fact that the economy and job openings are scarce right now, and I was looking for a long time before I landed what I now have.
If you are looking for a job take the time to visit workingmums.co.uk and stay a while; look through their job listings, part-time jobs, work from home jobs; take some time to read their advice and hot topics. You’ll learn a thing or two, and hopefully you’ll land a job!
