Susannah SImons, Recruitment Consultant, Jems Recruitment Ltd
"Workingmums has been a great recruitment website for our company to use. Firstly, it is a very "user friendly" site and the ideal place for us to advertise when part time roles come in. We have found excellent candidates through your website and were very pleased that following the first job, which we posted, that we were able to submit some excellent mums who applied to us, one of whom got the job. We will definitely be using workingmums for future recruitment and would certainly recommend them both as a great advertising tool and also, being three working mums in our office, as a great website to use to find roles for mums."

Tina Goodhart, Business Consultant, Square Mile Connections
At Square Mile Connections we promote flexible working to accommodate working parents. We made contact with 'Working Mums' and decided with the advise of Tom, to send out a direct mailshot to their database of London based individuals for a role we had in our London office. We had an exceptional response from people who have been working in the recruitment industry - the best response I have come across in all my years of sourcing recruiters! The Team are very helpful, professional and flexible in their approach we would highly recommend them and would definitely use their service again.

Georgie Kemp, Business Development Manager, Notting Hill Internet Services
"We were desperate to find a PA/Administrator to join us who would be flexible in their working hours, work from home as well as in our office and who would also work part-time. We thought finding someone would be a fairly difficult task, however we couldn't have been more wrong. Within three days of our job ad going live on Working Mums we had received a staggering response. What really amazed us was not only the quantity of the responses, but the very high quality. The result was us employing three new people without filling the original position, such was the calibre of the people interviewed! Since then we have since successfully advertised for freelance writers and have employed our wonderful PA - all thanks to Working Mums. We will certainly use WorkingMums in the future and would not hesitate in recommending their service."

They are engaging very successfully with this untapped demographic and have something genuinely new to offer in recruitment terms, and the service we received from Louise and her team was excellent on every level. I sincerely recommend that you give them a go!'
Andrew Smith, Business Development Director, Emereo Solutions (UK) Ltd
"As a small but growing business Emereo Solutions requires flexible human resource solutions for staffing this business. Working Mums provided this and much more. The accounts position we had to fill, as important as it is, only requires a qualified individual on a part-time basis, ideal for someone looking to get back to work but still with a family to run. None of the candidates disappointed us in terms of their undoubted ability to do the job so final selection was pleasantly difficult!"
Libby Calaby, Director, ConceptCV
"I was recommended to workingmums.co.uk through a friend who had used the service to find work at home, so I placed 2 advertisements for home based freelance staff. During the 30 days that my ads were live, I received in excess of 100 applicants for the roles and have managed to successfully recruit. The quality of the response has been overwhelming and far better than any other job site I have previously used to recruit. I would recommend their services to any employer who is seeking talented and committed home based personnel".
Lois Holland, Digital Media Producer, TMP Worldwide.
"We have been using WorkingMums.co.uk for the past 6 months and are delighted with the service and also the response to our advertising.

All of which allowed us to promote our client's flexible working policies alongside recruiting for specific vacancies. We have signed up on behalf of our client for further long term advertising and would thoroughly recommend Workingmums as a source of quality candidates".

recommended you to other organisations..."
Jo Tandy, Client Service Manager, MKH Advertising
"My client Kumon Educational have been looking to target mums returning to work to run their own business as a Kumon Instructor. The message is a difficult one to convey and the variation of products available from the WorkingMums site, in particular the advertorial have been invaluable for boosting traffic to the Kumon Franchise site. The value for money has far out weighed any other site and we are looking to continue advertising on the WorkingMums site well into 2008 and beyond!"
Sarah Baillieu RIBA, ARB, Sarah Baillieu Architects
"I did not want to use the standard architectural recruitment companies because their fees were too high and as a small business I just could not afford it. I had been advertising for architects and assistants on the architectural websites with no success when a friend recommended www.WorkingMums.co.uk. Immediately, I thought it sounded like a fantastic idea as I realised there were a lot of women in architecture that had left and were presumably at home. I advertised and within a month I had interviewed and found someone who is currently working for me. I would highly recommend the website."
Bradley Warwick, Business Development Director, Crafted Media

majority of which were suitable for the role being extremely experienced in

We were overwhelmed with applicants, and your e-mail responses to how we might temper them was excellent and prompt. The level of candidates was extraordinarily high compared to many other sites we have tried. Other advertisements will follow be assured.”
Jessica Taplin, The One I Want.com

The site is easy to use and efficient, well done WorkingMums.co.uk!"
Janie Maddox, Co-founder of Simply CV's
“Since our business was launched a little over 3 months ago, we have grown the team from two to a team of 8 which is no mean feat. The majority of our home based workers were sourced from your fantastic and innovative website - without which we could not have achieved the team growth we have. Nearly all the team are based at home, working in their own time and to their own life balancing needs (myself included). Your site came along at the right time for us, and no doubt for other like minded businesses who want to challenge the notion that 'all jobs and businesses need to be office based in order to succeed'. Your site takes it that one step further in that it taps into a huge talent pool that is currently just sitting outside the main job seekers market, namely women who have taken a break from the formalised employed market. Thank you for taking the leap of faith and setting up this service.“
