Being a mum can be tough, we know that. We are mums ourselves, and we specialise in lifting other mums up, which we do through our fabulous, flexible and completely free courses.

We’re here for you if you want to…

Go Back to Work


You may be feeling nervous about going back to work, or insecure that you can’t get a job, but the good news is that we’re here to help.

Our back-to-work courses will give you practical workplace and job finding skills, a sense of direction and a network of like-minded mums. Every mum on our courses gets their own one-to-one Successful Mums coach, as well as a year of access to an online support group.

Improve your Digital Skills


Technology plays a central role in the workplace these days, especially at a time where so many people are working remotely. But don’t worry, there’s no need to feel bamboozled by technology!

Whether you have no digital skills whatsoever, or you just feel out of the loop after a long career break, our friendly team can teach you skills that employers seek out, including use of Microsoft Teams, Trello and social media.

Set up a Business


Do you dream of generating an income from something you have a passion for? Running your own business could be the perfect way to work around your family commitments.

Our business start-up courses provide practical advice on how to set up a business, specialist workshops and our signature confidence coaching and support network. Let us help you to recognise your forté and take the first steps towards becoming a businesswoman.

“Returning to work made me realise just how much I’d missed being “me”. As much as I loved my role as a stay-at-home mum, I also enjoyed using my finance and business skills, team working and getting to know lots of different local businesses via the Successful Mums network. It has really helped me to build my confidence.”


“Successful Mums has given me the confidence, skills and foundations that I need to start my own business. From writing a business plan, believing in myself and offering a support network of other mums who are going through the same thing…the whole experience has been invaluable.”


“My confidence was at zero when a friend of mine told me about the Back to Work course. I signed up and soon realised I wasn’t the only mum who’d stayed at home for a long time and who was struggling to find a job. Jane Knight, our tutor, has so much experience as a careers coach and you get the feeling she can really “see” you. The course helped me get my current role. Now I feel like I’m a complete person, not just mummy, cleaner, cook… I feel like “me” again.”


“The knowledge and support are amazing – it’s changed my life because for the first time in a very, very long time, I believe in the value of ALL of my experiences and I have a real drive to get back to work.”


“It’s not an exaggeration to say that Successful Mums changed my life. My children, who are eight and 10 now, also understand that we have a better life because I work and it’s really important to me to be a good role model for them.”


Find a Flexible Role

We also help mums find flexible roles with our Jobs Board. We encourage local friendly employers with flexible roles to post them here.

Jobseekers and employers need to be aware that this job board operates as a venue only and does not introduce or supply jobseekers to recruiters (or vice versa).
