Attending our Back to Work Course gave Sarah the confidence she needed to attend job interviews and has now found the perfect role!
What was your biggest barrier at the start of the course to finding work?
Time! Having a one and a two-year-old to look after whilst updating my CV and searching for a job was certainly a bit of a barrier!
How did Successful Mums do to support you with your barriers?
Successful Mums not only helped with updating my CV, which was so outdated and a dreaded task prior to the course, but they also suggested suitable job sites and groups to help the search more manageable with the limited time I had.
What did you hope to achieve from the course?
I wanted to gain more confidence and ultimately get a job offer.
How would you describe the content of the course?
It was really engaging, extremely insightful and very useful.
What did you gain from the course?
Definitely confidence – Georgina, our coach, spent time with me during our 121s to get me ‘interview ready’. This was so useful and meant I was fully prepped and confident when I attended the interviews.
“Successful Mums gives you that much-needed time to focus on yourself to navigate career and job options available to you as a mum.“
How did your job search go?
I got a job! I’m now a PR Manager. It’s a part-time role which is perfect for my work-life balance and more importantly childcare situation. I work 2.5 days a week from home and in the office.
What difference has attending this course made to your life?
It gave me the confidence to succeed in finding the perfect job and has made me realise that you can balance work with being a mum!
How would you describe what Successful mums do to your best friend?
Successful Mums gives you that much-needed time to focus on yourself to navigate career and job options available to you as a mum. They give you the support and tools to start your job search, support you through the interview process and make you aware of the childcare options that are available.
By meeting other mums on the course it makes you aware that you are not alone, so many others mums have the same struggle with finding the perfect work-life balance.
