After 18 months as a stay-at-home mum, Lily wanted to return to work but lacked confidence and had no idea where to start. Successful Mums was there to help!

What was your biggest barrier at the start of the course to finding work?

I’d been out of the workplace for 18 months and was struggling with my confidence.

How did the course support you with your barriers?

It helped me rebuild my confidence, I was given some great tips and advice on how to update my CV and was provided with amazing support throughout.

What did you hope to achieve from the course?

I hoped to regain my confidence and be supported on my back-to-work journey.

How would you describe the content of the course?

Really helpful and supportive. My trainer has been so great throughout, she always made me feel that I could rely on her and she never let me down whenever I had any work-related issues or dilemmas.

What outcomes did you gain from the course?

Definitely confidence! I had drive to find a better job and gained a great work-life balance for me and my family.

If you are working, what is your role and how does this fit in with your family life?

I am now a senior project manager at a creative agency called Hugo & Cat. It’s a full-time role but it is very flexible which means I can plan and manage my day to work around my responsibilities at work and at home.

“Successful Mums do so much more than help mums get back to work. They give you the confidence and drive you need to start looking for work, applying for roles and attending interviews.”

What difference has attending this course made to your life?

It gave me that push to not only start looking for work but to apply for roles I never thought I’d get after being a stay-at-home mum for 18 months.

Finally, how would you describe what Successful Mums do to your best friend?

Successful Mums do so much more than help mums get back to work. They give you the confidence and drive you need to start looking for work, applying for roles and attending interviews. They support you when dealing with rejection and help you move forward.

This support has been and still is, invaluable for me.
