Meet the Team
mumandworking is run by a small team of amazing Mums who all work from home around their families. So, who will you be talking to?
Hi I'm Zena - mumandworking's Manager of all things Digital and Content. I joined What's On 4 back in 2006 when it was just one website. I look after all of our fantastic websites, eshots and promotions. I've been working with companies that offer flexible working opportunites, training and advice for over 10 years now, so can help with any questions you may have about how to raise your profile on the web. As we all work flexibly from home, if you give me a call you'll often hear the grumblings of my gorgeous dog in the background, please don't mention anything about him whilst talking to me, I've been known to talk solidly for hours about him! I also manage our What's On 4 working parents in various countries around the world.
Hi I'm Mel - mumandworking's Manager of all things Sales and Customer Service Related. I also look after our gorgeous Customer Account Managers.
I have 8 years experience in online advertising solutions, so can easily assist you with creating that tip top package to promote your job vacancy. It's my job to make sure that our customers are satisfied and that our shows go without a hitch and are enjoyed by exhibitors and visitors alike.
Hi I'm Kristy, I'm one of the Customer Account Managers for mumandworking.I have two children, William and Catherine. As an army wife who moves every 2 years I have a vast understanding of the need for flexible working, especially around childcare, and the need for parents to feel welcome within the company they work for. I love learning about the views of the fantastic companies who advertise with us and their commitment to helping parents achieve a flexible working role around their families.
Hi I'm Nicki, I'm one of the Customer Account Managers for mumandworking. I have 1 child Jacob who is 9 years old. Trying to juggle home life and work can be tough, but mumandworking have made it possible to get the balance just right and to have the best of both worlds.
I like cooking, aqua aerobics and being with my family. Uniquely I can pat my head my head and rub my tummy whilst singing the national anthem!
So what are parents are saying about mumandworking?...
Just wanted to write and tell you what a fabulous website you have!
I have just bought for the first time, the magazine "With kids" where I read about your website and immediately logged on - and was addicted!!
I was all set to hang out my washing, clean out the goldfish bowl and pair up all the family's odd socks and none of it got done!! It truly is a wealth of information, advice and fun and I cannot emphasis enough how much a website like this has been needed. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends and congratulate you on your forward thinking, hard work and brilliant idea!
Linsey, Mum to Erin and new baby on the way!
I am now a Party Plan Consultant, and a book Stallholder. I came across both these fabulous companies through your wonderful website!
I'd been looking for a job that would fit round my young family for weeks. I saw Mum and Working in my local magazine and logged on that night. Two weeks later I started my new job working for Jim and Pete at Smithson & Parker Accountants. The office is 10 minutes from my house and the hours are great.
Kate, Mum to Lottie and Charlie
And what do our advertisers think?....
I was very impressed with the service I received from them when placing the advert, Within 2 weeks I have received a number of potential enquiries and have secured one franchise already! I feel this advertising works particually well as mums are actually looking for work/franchises and it covers the whole of the UK. Thanks mum and working for a great service.
Sue Cannings, Bristol Babysitting Agency
Mum and Working is great value for money - we've seen a fantastic response!
David Cox, Music with Mummy
We are very pleased with our experience to date with Mum and Working, and find that advertising on the Mum & Working website provides us with high quality, relevant referrals. The site is well presented and we believe that it offers excellent value for money. We would recommend Mum & Working to any business that wishes to attract high quality leads for business opportunities suited to mums.
Natalie Iken, Does My Tum Look Big In This
We had an excellent response to the advertisement and received very good applications. We interviewed 2 of them and the successful applicant, Louise, joined us last Monday. She is working 9.30 to 11.30 Mon-Fri, and will vary the hours/work from home during the school holidays. She has already settled in very well and is a fantastic asset to us.
This seems to be a win win situation for all concerned, and those organisations that for whatever reason do not consider recruiting in this way are clearly missing a valuable opportunity.
Thank you for making this happen for us!
Peter Gladdish, LAVAT
We are astounded by the response we are receiving to our advert on the mumandworking site. The amount of space we are allocated means we can give a real insight into what is involved working for Small Steps and over a six month period we have had literally hundreds of enquiries! Mumandworking is obviously meeting the needs of a huge workforce out there who have a considerable amount of expertise in the workplace but who want to balance this with family life.
Cora Palmer, Cora Publications, publishers of Small Steps magazine.
Mum and Working is an excellent and extremely professionally developed and run website. For La Jolie Ronde it ticks all our boxes and we can reach our target audience with ease. The team at Mum and Working are truly a delight to work with. They always provide the highest quality service, are efficient, friendly and totally professional. Their "nothing is too much trouble" approach is much appreciated and I have valued their input with our campaign.
Mala Henry, Marketing Co-Ordinator, La Jolie Ronde Languages for children
We placed an advert for one month and received a high number of applicants of an extremely high standard. We interviewed six people who were brilliant and have now appointed one, possibly two of them. We are delighted with your service and the quality of people that have applied to us. We have always been committed to using the highly qualified working Mum (and Dad) market as we know from the school run, just how many great people are out there looking for a worthwhile opportunity to use their brains and skills. Employers - wise up! There is a plethora of talent out there willing to work their socks off for you during school hours. Don't think that someone who works 0900 - 1730 is going to be any more productive than the super mums who can work 0930 - 1430! Thank you again for all your help finding so many brilliant candidates for us. A delighted client!
Paul Tizzard, Director - Flying Without Fear, Virgin Atlantic's Fear of Flying Programme.
Our Other Websites
www.whatson4littleones.co.uk was the first of our 4 websites founded by Sam back in 2006. Sam gained a lot of pleasure from taking her baby to various classes but found it very tricky to find out what was going on in her area. So she decided that parents like you needed a website that would have everything that was available for the under 5s and came up with www.whatson4littleones.co.uk! For older children don't miss a visit to our website www.whatson4schoolkids.co.uk and also www.whatson4kidsparties.co.uk for everything you need for a great party for your children! We have www.whatson4me.co.uk for adults activities. AND we're also franchised all over the world!
Since 2009 we've run www.mumandworking.co.uk providing flexible job opportunities and expert advice. What's On 4 was founded from a need for a flexible career and it's now fantastic that we can promote other family-friendly companies through www.mumandworking.co.uk.
The event for parents-to-be and families is the BabyExpo Baby Shows founded by Suzanne in 2007.
