A life-changing experience for Viviana

A life-changing experience for Viviana When Viviana made the decision to return to work last year, the prospect of job-hunting and interviews was a daunting one. But, she explains here, thanks to Successful Mums, she never felt alone.

I previously worked in the hospitality industry as a receptionist and concierge but I have two young children (aged six and four) and had been off work for a long time. After five years, I needed to regain my confidence and get professional advice on how to approach the workforce again. The Successful Mums Back to Work course was just right.

Special thanks goes to Georgina, our trainer, for her patience and time spent helping me with my CV. Rebuilding your confidence and self-esteem is hard work and it was probably my biggest challenge. I’m glad I wasn’t alone in that process.

It was an experience that changed my life and I walked away from the course with confidence, determination and my “invisible crown” back! I would definitely recommend Successful Mums to anyone who’s been in my situation.


I was guided every single step of the way, was given examples of how to rebuild my career and had the fantastic opportunity to hear other Successful Mums’ stories - Viviana
Going out to work is like a breath of fresh air and I’m now happily employed as a part-time admin officer for Bromley Council. The things I missed most when I wasn’t working were my independence and having time for myself – but this is my space and I feel like I have both of those back.

I love my colleagues and it’s been great meeting new people and chatting with adults about things other than baby food and tantrums. So thank you, Successful Mums, for all your hard work and passion!
