In a survey carried out by in London prior to launch, 80% of all working mums who responded wanted to work on a part-time basis, with 86% keen to explore freelancing or job-sharing opportunities*.

Gillian Nissim developed the service in response to her own experiences and frustrations as a working mum, coupled with her husband’s regular struggle to find quality professionals to complete project-based tasks.

Gillian says “Employers need skilled professionals and mums will often have the qualifications and experience they require. So it makes perfect sense to launch a service like that connects the two.

“So many working mums want a degree of flexibility in their jobs – to maximise the time they can spend with their children. The jobs and business opportunities that can provide that kind of flexibility are out there and WorkingMums’ aim is to provide mums with an easy route to them. It’s a win for employers too – its not always easy to find great people who want to work part-time, short-term or on a freelance basis or who are able to work from home. has a growing database of candidates from a wide range of industry sectors who can meet those requirements.”’s initial focus is on connecting mums with employers – primarily through classified advertising. This will be followed by:

· a business opportunities section

· service directories for childcare and home help

· articles and information

· online forums
