As the new school term begins, hundreds of skilled and experienced professionals will return to the workplace. They’re seeking rewarding jobs with local businesses.

And we know who they are.

Playground Noise

We often associate the first weeks of September with the excitable sounds of children returning to school after a long summer break. So why might this important for businesses? Back to School also marks the point where many professionally-skilled mothers whose children are starting full-time education turn their attention to returning to work.

Flexible Professionals

More and more women with professional skills return to work seeking jobs offering flexible hours, aiming to commit to a rewarding job alongside their family responsibilities. They’re also looking to work locally, maximising working hours while minimising commuting time.

Recruiting a part-time professional makes real business and economic sense. Ten2Two research shows that local businesses often don’t feel they can afford professionals with proven experience. But employing them flexibly changes that. It makes it affordable.

For example, employing a professional three days a week reduces the salary investment by 40% without compromise on the experience on offer. And if you’re clear about what you want this person to achieve, a lot can be achieved in 20-25 hours a week.

There are many formats that work well for you. Check out the Ten2Two website www.ten2two.org for a list of options.

Get Ready

At Ten2Two we’re ready for a busy time as the number of new candidates registering with us hits its annual peak. By the middle of ‘Back to School’ month our system will be humming with new people registering their interest in professional part-time roles and we’ll be pleased to accept them.

So if you’re thinking about getting on with your business after the summer lull, think about the great professional resources that can help you achieve your objectives, living just around the corner.

We know who they are.
