We’re delighted to have launched in Gloucestershire and Bristol! We celebrated on Tuesday evening with a group of enthusiastic, like-minded professionals interested in the opportunity to work part-time or flexibly.

Balloons, cupcakes and prosecco was the order of the night along some inspiring talks and a room full of local professionals.

After some informal networking, John O’Sullivan, founder and Chair of Ten2Two opened the event and told the story of how Ten2Two was founded and why, after ten years, they are still so passionate about connecting local businesses with talented local professionals.

Tracey Adams explained how becoming a member of Ten2Two means joining a local community of like-minded professionals all with the common purpose of finding a role that offers that elusive work/life balance.

Finally, Judi Bonham, Managing Partner of WSP Solicitors explained the great benefits that having a flexible workforce can bring to an organisation.  She quoted that an astounding 42% of their staff across all levels of the business work on a part-time basis. As a successful local law practice employing over 80 people, this is a fantastic example of how flexible working can work, particularly in a client facing environment.

All in all an informative, inspiring evening was had by all with everyone looking forward to seeing great things.

We’ve had some great feedback “Very nice to meet you this evening. I’m going to join up tomorrow… Thank you for a refreshing chat – ending January on a very good note” and “Exemplar of open-minded for long-term benefits”.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) has previously been seen as stereotypically male and ‘geeky’: not cool, not fashionable and not something to aspire to. It also had a lack of female role models and little […]
