HELPING MUMS GET THEIR MOJO BACK, SINCE 2014
We work with a wide range of mums; from those who held corporate positions before their maternity leave, those on a career break, those that have faced redundancy due to the pandemic, as well as mums that just fancy a new career.
Along with helping mums gain skills that employers seek, we also help those looking to set up their own businesses, by equipping them with the skills to make this a reality.

OUR FOUNDER, JANE KNIGHT
Jane’s background working in enterprise, funding and education, being a qualified teacher, career advisor and coach is a solid base for founding Successful Mums in 2014. After facing resistance to coming back to work part time herself, Jane knew she could help other mums in the same position.
Fast forward to 2021. Successful Mums is a team of 10, award winning and accredited. We’ve helped thousands of mums regain their confidence and purpose after having children.
Jane has contributed to a number of government policy papers, sits on a number of women’s digital boards across South East of England, is a Judge for a number of London awards and is a key voice in shaping future Ofqual accredited training courses.
We are inclusive and welcome dads, non-parents and carers too. We are able to offer support for additional learning needs so everyone has the same access to our training.
We are both Matrix and Disability confident accredited and have received a number of ‘Outstanding’ observations based on the Ofsted grading structure.
We are proud to have won the ERSA Partner of the Year for our inventive partnerships, including our partnerships with HM Prison Holloway, Sainsburys, Marks and Spencer as well as our continued outreach partners to provide social mobility opportunities to women in underprivileged areas.
At Successful Mums, we are really big on charity and supporting our community – so much so that each month, regardless of the weather, we run 5k, 10k a half marathon. We also organise activities like mountain climbing and abseiling to raise funds!
Our main charity is the Evelina Children’s Hospital. However, we also support Demelza, Children in Need, Pancreatic Cancer UK and Mind. To date, we have raised thousands – thanks to all our generous donors.
