Parents are to receive a helping hand to balance work and life from a brand new jobs scheme to be launched tomorrow by Amber Rudd.
Writing exclusively for the Sunday Express, the Work and Pensions Secretary says her new initiative will make it easier than ever before for parents to find work.
As thousands of kids flood through school gates for the first time this September, many parents, especially mums, will be keen to get their careers back on track.
The new website will use technology to gather more than 50,000 job adverts, all specifically designed with flexi working in mind.
From head chefs and party planners to book keepers and web developers, the roles on offer include both full time and part time jobs.
Amber Rudd said:
The balancing act parents perform isn’t easy. For many, it’s when kids start school that mums – and dads – look to get their careers back on track.
Still wanting to put your kids first often means work comes second – it has to fit your life and work for your family.
So finding good, flexible work is so important – which is why I’m making it easier.
I want parents to know that I’m backing them, by ensuring that when they want to work, opportunities are available that fit into the world of the breakfast rush, packed lunches and school run.
