Meet Monika, one of our remarkable graduates. After completing our Back to Work and Confidence Course, Monika not only gained valuable skills but also secured a role through our Job Board! 

My name is Monika, and I am originally from Poland. Throughout my life, I have always had a vision of helping and supporting people. I graduated in law and started my professional career. I enjoyed my job and the opportunities it provided, but one day, I decided to broaden my horizons and challenge myself. I wanted to try something new, so I became a flight attendant. This career change turned out to be an incredible experience. It allowed me to meet wonderful friends, including my fiancée, and gave me the opportunity to travel the world and enjoy life to the fullest. It was like a dream come true.


Two years later, I became pregnant and couldn’t have been happier. However, when the pandemic arrived, my life became extremely complicated. I was made redundant during my maternity leave when my daughter was only six months old. I decided to focus on raising my daughter and make the most of this time. But deep down, I was also terrified, knowing that I would eventually have to go back to work and start all over again. Despite the joy my daughter brought me, this prospect was very scary.

And so, my journey began. I had no idea what to do or where to start. I completed several online courses and gained new qualifications, but I still wasn’t sure what the future held for me. After being out of work and feeling uncertain, I felt the need to boost my confidence and refresh my skills. That’s when my career coach at the job centre introduced me to Successful Mums Career Academy. It was exactly what I was looking for.

“I felt supported by a group of fantastic people, all in similar positions. I realised that I wasn’t alone in struggling to regain my confidence – we were all in this together.

I was excited to enrol on their employability and digital skills course with wonderful coaches, Dee and Georgina. I felt supported by a group of fantastic people, all in similar positions. I realised that I wasn’t alone in struggling to regain my confidence – we were all in this together. I enjoyed participating in webinars and expanding my knowledge. I learned a lot and improved my skills in time management, organisational skills, and communication. I finally felt ready for the next chapter in my life. Successful Mums also helped me recognise the skills I had gained from being a parent and showed me how I could transfer them into a career.

Not only did they help me regain my confidence, develop my skills and support me in my job search, but they also advertised the perfect role on their Job Board!

Now, I work part-time as a legal assistant, and I have the opportunity to grow in my dream career. My job also fits in with my family commitments and I have a pathway to my long-term career goal. I am on the path to having it all.


I am incredibly grateful for all the support I have received from Successful Mums. What they do is phenomenal. This wonderful team has given me the confidence to pursue what I wanted and provided me with all the tools to find a job I love. I highly recommend Successful Mums to everyone.
