About

Hello and welcome to ProfessionalMums.net, an employment community for women in professional services where we seek to match up highly-skilled mothers with family-friendly firms.

I am a financial professional with global experience. In addition to audit and assurance experience in the retail and oil & gas industries, I have provided advisory services to clients around the world in a diverse range of sectors.

I am also a mum. I am fortunate in that I work in a business that allows me the flexibility to progress my career while meaningfully experiencing motherhood.

In the support networks I developed while pregnant and addressing the challenges of being a new mum, I met competent, skilled and driven women from all major professions. I recognized that these mums represented a tremendous pool of professional talent which New Zealand businesses could benefit from accessing.

ProfessionalMums.net provides the meeting place for these mothers and businesses. Career minded mums can retain control of their careers by working with companies that value flexibility. New Zealand businesses can solve professional staffing needs efficiently and cost effectively by accessing our network of talented mums.

If you are a mum then please contact me or sign up and we will market this unique database of highly-skilled professionals to employers that support flexible work practices. For these organisations it’s a way of increasing the number of women they have in work, and for women it’s a way of marketing yourselves as mothers who are committed to work but want that elusive work/life balance.

For firms I encourage you to get in touch with me or participate in this community. Many firms pay a lip-service to the concept of flexibility for working mothers – being part of our community is a way to make your commitment to keeping more mothers in the workplace something that is real.

Please note that at this point our focus is on the professional services of law, accountancy, engineering, IT, management consultancy, human resources, marketing/communications and banking and finance. If you think that we should expand our services beyond these areas then please get in touch.
