FIND YOUR FLEX LAUNCHES NEW APPRENTICESHIP AND RETURN HUBS

Applications for Flexible Working Triple and CEO Wins a Community Maker Award.

FindYourFlex, the job platform for parents and anyone who needs flexibility at work, has launched its popular apprentice and return hubs. These are designed to help job seekers find roles offering flexibility. 

The apprenticeship hub showcases roles to suit people in their early careers as well as midlife career changers. Whilst the return hub targets people returning to work after an extended career gap, offering re-training and leadership courses. 

Cheney Hamilton, CEO and Founder of FindYourFlex (to include Mummyjobs.co.uk and Daddyjobs.co.uk) comments: “Since the start of COVID, more than 51% of women have said that the pandemic has made them want to change industry or set up in business alone” She added: “We have also seen our audience double since the relaunch of these hubs and applications for flexible working have tripled

FindYourFlex has also commissioned an extensive D&I survey. Designed to show that flexible working is the key component in driving inclusivity and organic diversity in the workplace, due to the accessibility to work that flexible working affords.

Cheney added: “Our research shows that 14% of our audience has a disability, 36% are male, 43% are non- white British, 39% identify as being part of the LGBTQ+ community and 58% are Degree educated or higher”. Although these are early figures, they demonstrate diversity in the audience.

Last month, Cheney Hamilton, CEO and Founder of Find Your Flex was delighted to receive the Community Maker Award by She Has No Limits. These prestigious awards are held annually and celebrate women’s achievements in the workplace. 

The Community Maker Award recognises a woman who has been successful in creating and leading her community to the benefit of all. With care and consideration, she has gone the extra mile to make her tribe feel supported.

The Find Your Flex Group Launches To Meet Growing Demand For Flexible Working

The Result Of Success

Following the exponential success of multi-award winning recruitment websites – mummyjobs.co.uk and daddyjobs.co.uk – the founders are launching FindYourFlex.co.uk. This also involves the rebranding the Mummyjobs Group to The Find Your Flex Group on 1 March 2019.  This move is to provide an inclusive platform for anyone looking for flexible working.

Cheney Hamilton launched Mummyjobs in 2017. This was fuelled by her own personal circumstances when she was unable to return to the 9-5 after the birth of her second baby.  Shocked by her employer’s unwillingness to offer flexibility, she quickly discovered it was a nationwide problem. It wasn’t just parents affected either, but a staggeringly large group of people. This included graduates to grandparents, who were looking for flexible work.

Cheney says “My own personal situation prompted me to set up mummyjobs.co.uk. However it quickly became clear that there’s a much bigger demand for flexible working across the labour market. Just after the initial launch, we went viral and over 1.2million people engaged with us over a 10-day period, searching or in support of flexible work.

Times have changed and so has the labour market.  We have five generations in the workforce. Generation Z are opting for work over University. We have the Gig economy and a 24/7 international community powered by technology. The traditional 9-5 is fast becoming a way of the past.  The demand for flexible working is clearly out there. Employers need to consider this when looking for the best talent.”

The New Job Board

The new job board (jobs.findyourflex.co.uk) offers a wide range of roles across all sectors from causal work to senior appointments.  All champion flexible working. It could be part-time, job-share, compressed hours, annualised hours, staggered hours, term-time only or phased retirement. The site also continues to share practical advice and provide a platform for people to share their experiences relating to flexible working. The Mummyjobs and Daddyjobs sites remain but will become campaigning sites for parental rights, closing the gender pay gap and equal leave benefits.

Cheney continues “This feels like a major turning point for the recruitment industry.  We’re working with small niche companies right through to big blue chip brands. I predict that many more employers will realise that flexibility needs to become a requisite part of their employment strategy. Failure to do so could lead to them missing or losing the best candidates for the role.”
