Back to Work or New Career

Whether you need help building up your confidence for returning to work, require support finding your perfect job or possibly a new career, our friendly, experienced team can help.

We’ve helped thousands of mums regain their confidence and take control of their careers and we’d love to help you do the same.

Start or develop your business

Whether you’ve considered becoming your own boss but don’t know where to start, or you have a business already but need help growing it, you’re in the right place.

Our experienced business coaches have supported thousands of mums to become self-employed and turn their ideas into reality.

ONE-TO-ONE COACHING

As well as our accredited training, we also offer free one-to-one career or business coaching. The coaching is perfect if you are keen to get back to work or want help in starting a business.

All the sessions are online and one-to-one so everything is completely tailored to your needs. The coaches can cover a whole raft of brilliant topics including getting your mojo back; CV creation; finding a job; applications; imposter syndrome and combatting nerves; plus those all-important interview skills and where those flexible and part time jobs are hiding.

We can ultimately help you land a perfect job that works for you and your family. Or if you are looking to get a business idea off the ground, you can use the coaching sessions to discuss all the essential aspects of getting a business up and running, including branding, marketing and finances.
