We are creators of the #WorkThatWorks Movement and are bringing about widespread cultural change to the way we work in Britain.  Forget the rigid 9-5, coat-on-chair model, we aim to encourage more businesses to embrace a new way of flexible working for all.  

Our vision is to empower all mums and businesses with #WorkThatWorks - the perfect flexible working culture that enables employees and employers to thrive. It’s a vision that we’ve fully adopted with a 100% flexible working policy.

  • A passion and strong understanding of our business mission.

  • Ability to be autonomous and take ownership of projects.

  • Being very organised.

  • Confidence in conducting proactive outreach to third parties.

Rather than talk about what’s new in the world of social media over the next two months with the inevitable "predictions for social media in 2021" blogs, we want to talk about what’s NOT new. Those unchanging, fundamental principles that underpin social media success. There's no point chasing the new features and functionalities if you haven't got the basics in place.
