Suzannah Butcher – Founder of Work for Mums

Hi there and thank you for visiting us, I’m Suzannah and it’s great to welcome you here. Work for Mums went live back in 2010 and originally it was a basic 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.  

As well as jobs for mums, we also have a wide range of useful articles to help people with their job search and career path, along with business focus articles for those running a business (or thinking about it).

I still run the site on my own but have a great team of UK wide contributors and virtual assistants, plus wonderful tech support provided by my husband Colin.  We work from a home office based in sunny Torquay, Devon.  Working flexibly was really important to me when I had my children, so I understand what its 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). At age 35 I was on maternity leave after having my daughter and I decided to start my own direct selling business with Phoenix Trading. I’d never done anything like it before but I was desperate to find something flexible so I could spend more time with my children.  Since Work for Mums has evolved I have scaled down my Phoenix business but still operate online.  I also run Super Mums Business Club to help mums grow their small business.

Thank you for dropping by,

Suzannah x
