New Exhibitor Announcement – Find YOUR Power 2021 – Jess Heagren – That Works For Me; Keeping parents in the workplace and stopping skills going to waste

We are so proud to announce that Jess Heagren, CEO and Cofounder of That Works for Me, will be joining us as an exhibitor at the 2021 Find Your Power Event at the stunning Heythrop Park Hotel in Oxfordshire. As well as our Speakers our exhibitors are incredible businesses who are spending the day with us to talk to you all on a 1-1 throughout the day, to offer insight, information and advice.

Here’s a note from Jess:

Flexible working – ever wonder if it’s a bit of a unicorn? Something that sounds perfect but that you’ve never actually seen in real life? It’s not! Jess Heagren is CEO and CoFounder of flexible working platform, That Works For Me. Keeping parents in the workplace and stopping skills going to waste, That Works For Me brings businesses the skills and people they need to grow, when they need them, in an really affordable, easy to use platform. 

“I’ve held a range of Director positions in UK insurance giant DLG. Like many women, I found that a senior career in a financial services corporate, plus a young family just didn’t work. I decided to leave and found myself as a mother of two, with 15 years of experience in buying, selling and leading businesses, with nothing to do but play building blocks. 

The more I spoke to other Mums, the more it seemed there were a million others in the same boat as me. I saw more talented women in baby groups than I had seen in most board rooms!

I was speaking to a good friend one day who had previously worked as a marketing director for one of the UK’s biggest alcohol brands. She was considering working in the local off license a couple of days a week. Behind the till. I was furious. How could this be happening? How could there be so many experienced, talented women out there unable to find work doing the thing they were good at, just because they don’t fit a standard 9 to 5? 

A few weeks later another friend of mine called me in tears. She was on the brink of going bust. Her highly successful company was hours away from going under because her too-junior finance person had reported her cashflow wrongly. 

“Why don’t you have a CFO?” I asked (after I had pacified her of course!). She told me her business wasn’t big enough to fill a full FD role.

I suggested she hire a mum, or someone only looking for a day or two’s work a week, “you’ll get the skills you need, and they will have the hours and mental stimulation they need…it’s a win for everyone!”

I started to wonder if anything existed to bring together talented people looking for flexible work, with businesses in need of the skills they deserved – it didn’t. 

This was how That Works For Me was born.

I found expensive recruitment agencies at one end of the spectrum and freelancer platforms at the other. But nothing in between that could provide an affordable, digital solution that was easy to use, with flexible working at their core. So together with my best friend and now cofounder Nic, that’s what we built.

We launched That Works For Me last December and now have over 3,000 members. 

We so often see small businesses and agencies stop themselves from accessing the expert help they need because they believe they’re too small, or can’t fill a full time role. It’s frustrating to know that businesses need flexible employees when there are so many people out there desperate for this kind of work. 

What we have created for businesses is a marketplace of thousands of experienced professionals ranging from social media managers to lawyers – all looking to work flexibly, remotely and outside of the 9 to 5. 

Since we launched, over 90% of registered businesses have found the skills they need and deserve – when they need them – on our totally affordable, digital platform. It’s wonderful to see. Now, we just need more people to know about us so we can crack on with those connections! 

We would love members of the Single Mums Business Network to register with That Works For Me, so we can help you reach your business goals before the end of year. 

If you’re looking to boost online sales, need a fantastic digital marketing strategy to drive traffic to your website, or a really strong social media voice to bring customers to you – we’ve got you covered!

We have hundreds of UK-based social media managers, thanks to our relationship with Digital Mums. If you haven’t heard of them they are an amazing business that has re-trained hundreds of social media and digital marketing experts, who have gone on to find success with the BBC, Disney, LinkedIn, YouTube and many, many more. Digital Mums trained social media managers will help you attract and engage with your target customers.

Digital marketing is another specialty. Our experts can help you work out how to bring new customers to your website and get them to buy. Just what you need to bring in some additional income for the rest of this year!

We also have HR specialists, finance folk, project managers and loads more! Check them out here!

If you’re thinking about employing people flexibly and aren’t sure where to begin. We can help. If you need some support with your finance and reporting, we can help with that too!

When we are faced with adversity, we can let it ruin us, or we can sit with it, sail the stormy rivers, and look forward to dry land.. it is true that an entire sea of water can only drown a ship if that ship lets the water in. There is no denying it, this pandemic is tough, Covid19 is doing all that it can to ensure that you produce Cortisol, the stress hormone, instead of Oxytocin, the hormone that promotes feelings of love, wellbeing, and contentment.
