Thinking of reigniting your career post-baby, but not quite ready to plunge headfirst back into the world of full-time office hours? This could be a good option: online parenting retailer Mumzworld is reintroducing its return-to-work programme, offering flexible ‘returnships’ for qualified and professional mums who are looking to return to the workplace.

The initiative promises flexible working hours, the opportunity to work from home, and specialised training that will provide the toolkit for women to resume and develop their careers. The positions are paid and will be for a fixed timeframe.

Women at all levels of seniority and expertise are invited to apply for a Mumzworld ‘Returnship’, from top-level managers to experienced and tech-savvy mothers who have enjoyed an extensive career before motherhood.

Various positions are available, from marketing to buying and copywriting, and the Mumzworld recruitment drive will begin on 23rd to 26th April with over a dozen positions to be filled.  Mothers are encouraged to apply this week!

Mona Ataya, CEO & Founder of Mumzworld, said: “Our mission at Mumzworld has always been to empower mums by giving them the widest choice of quality and authentic products at the best prices, the latest information on everything mother, baby and child, the ability to compare, and the invaluable convenience of shopping from home. And now we have gone one step further. “

“Being so active in the mums community has enabled us to identify a growing need for women who’ve taken a career break to focus on their journey of motherhood, to regain a position in the workplace. This isn’t always easy, which is why we came up with our concept of a ‘returnship’ – a career opportunity that recognises and rewards professional women for their skills and talents, and still allows them the flexibility of managing their home life.
