The website where you can find flexible work opportunities and access useful resources to find employment, grow your career or help you start or grow a business
Hi there and thanks for visiting! I’m Suzannah, the founder of Work for Mums, and it’s great to welcome you here.
Work for Mums first went ‘live’ back in 2010. It started out as a business blog for my direct selling business. As the site grew, it started to attract people who wanted to write guest blogs for the site and advertise with us. Eventually, in April 2013, we went live as a recruitment website to help mums and dads find flexible work options.
We have a wide range of useful articles to help people with their job search and career path, along with business articles for those running a business (or thinking about it).
Working flexibly was really important to me when I had my children, so I understand what it’s like to be a mum looking for a new opportunity – it can be an overwhelming and emotional time. I’ve structured the site so that it’s easy to navigate around but if you can’t find something or need more info, let me know and I’ll get onto it! My personal career background has been rather varied and I didn’t know what I wanted to do until my thirties. I’ve always been drawn to support type roles and had a long career giving advice and guidance to young people at Connexions (now Careers South West).
When I was on maternity leave after having my second child, I decided that I definitely didn’t want to return to work full time. I was desperate to find something flexible so I could spend more time my children, so made the decision to start my own business, which in turn led me to create this site.
I continue to run Work for Mums part-time whilst pursuing my passion to help female entrepreneurs reduce stress and anxiety using EFT Tapping
