Head Of Marketing
Helen is our Head Of Marketing & Social Media. After having her second child, her eldest was due to start school. After practising as a midwife for 13 years she felt a new challenge was needed. One that allowed the flexibility she needed. At the age of 36 a career change began. Transitioning from Midwife to Marketer is something she would describe as challenging and daunting but worth all the effort.
Now she is also on a shared mission to make flexible working as accessible to as many as possible, with the rest of The Find Your Flex team.
She is a mum to two with a supportive partner.
Spreading our team across the UK, Helen’s home is in the beautiful county of Cheshire.

Barbara is 64. She is part of our fabulous sales team. She has 3 children and 2 grandchildren. She struggled to see how she could see more of them in a straight 9 to 5 role with no flexibility. She is a WASPI woman so has to work until she is 66. She is passionate about flexible working as she knows the benefits from working flexibly herself 20 years ago!
When Barbara joined Find Your Flex she was so happy “they actually wanted an old Granny who could work from home”. She knows she still has a lot to give to the workplace. Flexible home working is perfect and she doesn’t feel isolated as there is always one of the team around.
Barbara loves the fact she can now ‘take’ her dogs to work. She loves to call Kent her home.

At 21, Matthew achieved his degree in Creative Writing. After leaving university he spent years in retail while trying to secure a role in Marketing.
Despite gearing all his qualifications towards the industry, one obstacle that continually prevented him from gaining a Marketing role was the paradoxical wheel of experience.
To overcome this, he applied for a Marketing apprenticeship with Find Your Flex to develop his knowledge and skills while putting his Creative Writing abilities to good use for a business who’s mission he believes in.
Matthew is passionate about incorporating Flexible Working as an essential aspect of employment. He has seen first-hand how companies use “fully flexible” requirements to capitalise on the need for employment at the expense of having a life outside of work.
Matthew is proud and excited to be analysing data and producing content that will aid in businesses creating a more inclusive, diverse and flexible working environment.
Matthew loves reading, writing and gaming in his spare time, that is when his dog Leo isn’t looking for attention.

Back in 2011, John Adams and his wife, Gill, took an unusual decision. Gill would work full-time and John would be the main carer to their two daughters, Helen and Izzy. John started blogging about his experiences at Dadbloguk.com. In so doing, he accidentally launched a career as a blogger and social media influencer!
Several years later and with both children now at school, John runs the blog as a business and fits it around his family commitments, producing content focused on fatherhood, family life, parenting and flexible working.
Dadbloguk.com has won numerous awards, most recently Best Dad Blog at the 2019 Online Influence Awards.
John, who has a background in journalism and public relations, is also well-known as a LinkedIn Changemaker, campaigning to make flexible working more widely available to mums, dads and carers.
In his spare time, John can often be found out in the countryside taking photographs. He is also very into keeping fit and, by his own admission, has a dreadful taste in music with a particular fondness of obscure, heavy rock.

Our Brilliant PR Team
Becky is part of the Find Your Flex PR dynamic duo and Mum to an 8-year old boy. She spent over 20 years living and working in London in TV, Media, brand and celebrities; holding in-house positions at Channel 4 and ITV and WPP.
Becky left London in 2013 and moved to Oxfordshire shortly after she and her husband had their long-awaited and (wished for!) son. At the end of her maternity leave, Becky soon realised that returning to her role with a large agency in central London whilst looking after a young baby would be a challenge.
She found herself faced, like many other parents, with the conflicting pull of wanting to return to her former role but the flexibility not being there. Unwilling to compromise by spending less time with her son and feeling constantly stressed with the juggle of work and home, Becky decided to embark on a freelance PR career, working with UK and International clients across multiple disciplines.
In 2019, Becky joined forces with her sister, Laura Bennett, also a working Mum to two young girls, to form Animal Social, experts in PR, Social Media and Facebook Advertising services. Animal Social is proud to work with Find Your Flex.

For a short time, Laura struggled with childcare and a long commute but soon realised that this wasn’t the work/life balance she had hoped for. In 2015 she decided to carve out her own path and re-launch her career by re-training in social media and paid advertising. In 2019 she joined forces with her sister Becky to form Animal Social.
