Next Tuesday sees the Working Mum’s Live 2012 Event take place at The Business Design Centre in Islington. It’s a free event to attend, and will be packed full of job opportunities, advice and fantastic speakers – all aimed at us working mums!
I cannot wait to attend and am very excited about the seminars, especially the ones on Social Media (who’d have guessed?) and how to make flexible working work for you and your family.
I think events like this are so important. They help to encourage mums back into the workplace by showing them, family friendly, non threatening job opportunities alongside giving them CV and work related tips in order to help them achieve their goals and get back into work. Without sites like Working Mums, and events such as Working Mums Live I would never have known where to look to find companies that sign up to the ‘flexible working’ and ‘family friendly’ ethos for working parents.
I hope to meet lots of interesting people at this event, so if you are going then please do let me know so I can say hi. Well….I don’t want to be Billy-no-mates all day now do I?
