Today, I'd like to think that women aren't held back career-wise because of their decisions to have families; but it remains a hard reality that women who are pregnant or have young children are looked at in a different, not so positive light when they apply to jobs, or when being considered for a promotion in the corporations where they work. Yummy Mummy Careers, is an employment agency that understands that even hard-working women have the right to make their families a priority, and finds them jobs and careers that also abide by this mentality.
The company, which is actually now called ConnectMoms (though I happen to think that the Yummy Mummy name that's still connected to their URL has a better ring to it) understands that moms can be career-minded and driven, but to excel need careers that understand their role as parents too. ConnectMoms specializes in placing women in jobs that allow women to work a part-time schedule, work flex hours, or that can be done completely or partially from home. They also post jobs from companies who understand that moms are great assets to companies, and offer flexibility to parents who might have to honor their family commitments at work from time-to-time.
In addition to the employment services provided by ConnectMoms, they also feature profiles of career-oriented women, offer advice on all aspects of family and career, post feature articles from a female perspective, and have some pretty neat prize giveaways.
Moms can do it all, and it's nice to see a little acknowledgement for the power of women - who can balance family, career and maintain their Yummy Mummy statuses all at the same time!
