As part of our ongoing business development to find Part-time opportunities we have been taking part in many events that are happening in and around the Kent area. This type of collaboration allows us to forge great relationships with local businesses.
Last week we were luck to sponsor and present an award for Diversity and Flexible working at the Kent Women in Business awards. We met many amazing businesses some who are new start ups and others who are going through a real growth period and are looking to build their teams. This week we will be chatting with candidates about preparing to return to work at the Women in Work event in Tunbridge Wells this event has been put on to encourage women back to work and look at a strategy to achieving goals. We were delighted to be asked to contribute to an article about Flexible working for Kent Vision live taking place in May. All of these events show us that flexible working is a hot topic. Its a great pleasure to be working in a county that has such a vibrant business community. Recent statistics show that just over 25% of Kent’s workforce are working Part time and flexibly and we are here to help them!
