As a parent, just like you, I found it very hard to find the confidence to get my career back on track after being made redundant whilst on maternity leave. Even as a Careers Professional with 8 years experience advising people on gaining worthwhile employment, I struggled with confidence and realising the positive skills I had gained since becoming a parent that could help me on returning to work.
I set up From Kids to Career to help women like you and me, who have taken time out to raise a family, get back to a career they love or to embark on a new one. I want to help Mums (and Dads) realise we are just as capable since becoming parents, in fact more so, with so many new skills to add to our CVs. Being a Mum does NOT put you at the bottom of the pile when it comes to your career.
Through this website and the services I provide I am providing practical advice and support to help you back to a career you love or to find a new exciting path. I’m going to show you how to celebrate your new skills that you’ve gained from raising a family, and how to use them to build on the already strong set of skills and experience you have worked so hard at achieving before becoming a parent.
This is absolutely not about getting any old job. It’s not about dumbing down your skills or taking on part-time work that you don’t enjoy because ‘you’re a mum now’. If flexible working is important to fit around your family, there is no reason why it should need to be less pay and less fulfilling than before.
