Why Digital Mums believes in #workthatworks

This July we are celebrating #workthatworks here at Digital Mums. We strongly believe that Mothers everywhere should have the chance to pursue a career they find engaging and interesting. And they should be able to fit this around family life.

In 2015 women should not have to choose between having a job they enjoy and spending as much time as they want with their children. Of course everyone makes different choices but we think they should be allowed to have both!

But, as a recent survey from 'She’s Back' found, the reality is a shocking 70% of women leave the workforce because they find it impossible to combine their career and family life. Three quarters feel there is just not enough flexibility. And frankly it doesn’t surprise us; childcare costs, bosses not agreeing to part time requests and confidence are just some of the issues.

We want women with children to be able to make choices that mean they can get back into the workplace. Social media management is definitely a job that really works for women with children and we want to celebrate that.

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing the stories of some of our amazing Digital Mums. We’ll hear from those that have already graduated and some that are still on the course. They all have one thing in common; they are united in their desire to have the best of both worlds. They all want a job they love and to spend enough time with their family. They want #workthatworks.

Check back over the next few weeks to hear from Mums including Brett, Juliet, Rebecca, Gill and Claire.

We’d also love to hear from you and like you to share your wider stories of #workthatworks. Perhaps you’ve set up your own business around family life or you’ve found the perfect job that you can fit around your children. This is about Mums celebrating their successes and finding the right work life balance for them. There is no one size fits all model!

You can share your own stories with us on Twitter and Facebook using #workthatworks and we’ll be sure to share them!
