September is a time for renewal: the leaves are falling and we’re on the hunt for conkers and acorns. (Or maybe that’s just us!)

At this time of year, many working mums are able to turn their attentions to their careers, particularly if children are starting school for the first time. Many of these will be seeking part-time or flexible work. And in most cases, they’ll be looking for it locally.

Grow your business this autumn

For businesses, it’s a great time to make a crucial hire. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about adding to your team for some time, but aren’t sure whether you can justify the expense? Or maybe there’s a gap in your skill set that you’ve not been able to fill until now?

This is the ideal time to benefit from the recently boosted skilled and experienced workforce – because right now, you can have the pick of the professional pool. And you’ll by recruiting someone for less than the cost of a full-time salary. It’s an enormous opportunity, not to be missed.

Big benefits for businesses

In our recent Member and client survey, 95% of businesses that had recruited a flexible worker felt the hire had been a benefit to their business. They cited ‘effective time management’ as one of the key abilities of a flexible worker, followed by organisational skills. We also found that those recruited were flexible about being flexible, with 60% of our Members offering to change hours after their initial hours had been agreed.

So look no further: we can help you to capitalise on this season of change and grow your business in the direction you want to. We’ve got lots of highly motivated and experienced candidates on our books now, so you never know – your perfect flexible working professional could be just around the corner.

Get in touch with your local Ten2Two office today and let’s see how we can help your business thrive.
