RecruitMyMom has been going for five years now and we’ve seen a massive increase in the number of employers willing to offer part-time or flexible work options, particularly when they see and recognise the value that skilled mothers bring to the workplace.
Here are some of the most in-demand positions we receive regularly:
1. Digital marketers
Employers need skills such as writing, blogging, social media posting and content marketing.
2. Professional PAs
CEOs are always looking for skilled, well-spoken candidates to set appointments and run diaries
3. Graphic designers
Graphic Designers are also in high demand as the internet continues to explode with opportunities. This kind of work is ideal because it can be done from home on a freelance basis and is often centred on specific projects.
