Build your career with our free local workshops

We’ve been providing businesses with flexible working professionals for many years now. In our experience, September is an ideal time for working parents to pursue their career ambitions once their children start back at school. Find out more here. 

We’ve also found the last quarter to be a key time for companies to make important hires. So if you’re thinking about a return to work post children, or if you’re on the hunt for your next career move, why not come along to one of our free workshops this month?

Not only will you get to brush up on your professional skills, you’ll also meet the team here at Ten2Two. And that can be highly valuable when it comes to finding the right flexible working role for you. It means we’ll know more about you and can better match you with the ideal position for your long-term career goals.
