Start-ups: working around your family


For many women, the end of maternity leave marks the point when working full-time in a traditional role stops making any financial, practical or emotional sense. There is a new generation of talented and bright women who have chosen another way of working, having ditched the power suits and boardroom battles for flexible part-time work that can fit around their children. They have realised that they don’t have to shoehorn their new lives into old roles, trying to fit around outdated, impractical workplace practices. Instead, they are seeking out work that allows them to choose their own hours that will fit around their family life.

Here we cover some of the popular flexible-working options available and show off the she.space mums who have made it work with great success!
