Been there

From the first days of flexible working, now embracing contemporary thinking and methods.

Our story begins

Our story started in 2007 at a Parent Association fundraising meeting.

Sitting at the table were a group of women, all talented professionals, not working because they couldn’t find a job that used their skills and offered rewarding work whilst still caring for their families. They wanted some flexibility, they wanted part-time and they wanted quality jobs. What was so difficult?

Then and since, despite recession, Brexit and many other domestic and world crises, businesses still thrive through talented people, and are constantly seeking great candidates but struggle to find them.

We explored ways to influence the adoption and growth of flexibility and realised change had to happen on the ground, in the workplace. So we launched a recruitment agency to make that change one part-time job at a time, matching those talented professionals with progressive companies that needed good people.

Fast Forward

The world has changed post-COVID. Flexibility is no longer perceived as a benefit by candidates, it’s an expectation – now 93% of job searches are looking for a role that includes flexibility. And according to recent research flexibility is less and less seen as a barrier to productivity by managers. But there’s still a long way to go to make flexibility fully understood and embraced within business. That’s why we have a team of real people that match the person to the job through flexibility.

Part-time potential

We believe part-time is still the hidden gem for growing businesses that need great people to succeed. Recruiting highly experienced and capable professionals at a fraction of the cost of a full-time salary is a compelling business case and a win-win for all.
