Our mission is to help mums who would like to get back to the workplace and secure the flexible careers they deserve.
We are Becky Willding-Jones and Rachel Veal. Whilst raising young children, we witnessed the struggles women faced when thinking about returning to work. With nearly 30 years in Human Resources between us, we often found ourselves supporting friends to regain career confidence, search and apply for flexible roles, refresh CVs and practice for interviews.
We knew there were organisations out there providing career coaching but there didn’t seem to be an offering which delivered this support flexibly. We are both into lifelong learning, but with small children we found that we could only do this remotely. This led to the idea of delivering career coaching virtually and the Career Relaunch Programme for mums began.
The Career Relaunch Programme delivers coaching to mums flexibly through weekly interactive webinar sessions. These are delivered on a weekday evening, 8pm to 9pm when partners may be home and little ones asleep (but if they’re not - all sessions will be recorded!).
We love the idea that women support women and so we incorporated a peer group coaching element. Mums can feel isolated and lack confidence when thinking about returning to work. Supportive peer group coaching activities can help combat some of these barriers.
We wanted to ensure that participants took action during the coaching journey and we were not just an e-learning course but an ‘e-doing’ course. At the beginning of each course we will set up a private Facebook Group Page to share content and information. We also offer the opportunity for mums to get in touch at any point during the course for extra support.
