Making it work for you

In recent research carried out by Slater & Gordon Lawyers, one in seven people aged 40 and over felt that they were more likely to be overlooked for promotion than younger colleagues, and by age 54, more at risk of redundancy and less likely to be approached about new opportunities.

More women than ever are setting up their own businesses, and many of these are mums looking for flexible or part-time work once they've had children. Your previous career may no longer work for you, but why shouldn't you still use the skills and experience you've learnt along the way?

We believe that once you have reached a certain age, you have a wealth of experience to draw on and skills to offer; and that if you're a mum who wants to work flexibly around having a family you should be able to work it out to suit you too.
