I’m proud to be an aunt and godmother, watching as my nieces, nephews and God children continue to grow into amazing people. My four angel babies will always share a part of my heart πŸ‘Ό πŸ‘Ό πŸ‘Ό πŸ‘Ό

I’m also blessed to have had the love and guidance of amazing women in my life including my grandmother who is no longer with us. To these amazing women, although we cannot be together physically, you are always in my heart and my memories – thankyou πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

For everyone whose ‘paid’ career has been put on hold, or you have navigated career pivots to meet the needs of your caring roles – you are not alone. Caring roles are just as valid and essential as ‘paid’ employment. If you would like help in weaving your caring roles into your career story, then please get in touch. You have so many experiences and skills that are valuable in so many job roles and industries πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Taking inspiration from Katherine Jennick’s ‘What’s Your Strength?’ cards, I selected a few (there are many more) from the pack that for me represent some of the the diverse roles and skills that people who have a mothering role may have.

πŸ’ I have caring responsibilities

πŸ’ I can manage finances

πŸ’ I can handle stressful situations

πŸ’ I have raised a family

πŸ’ I have returned to work after a break

πŸ’ I regularly cook meals for family and friends

πŸ’ I can balance work and home life

Some of the transferable skills and qualities that are used in these roles: Adaptable | Accuracy | Budgeting | Calm |Caring | Communication | Considerate | Creative Thinking | Dedication | Dependable |Empathy | Emotional Intelligence | Empowering | Flexible | Forecasting | Growth Mindset | Helpful | Independent | Initiative | Logical | Loyal | Numeracy Skills | Organisation | Patience | Planning | Positive Attitude | Prioritising | Problem Solving | Project Management | Reliable | Resilience | Record Keeping | Resourceful | Responsible | | Self-care | Self-Discipline | Sense of Humour | Social Intelligence | Time Management | Trustworthy | Willing to Try New Things …. these are but a few of the transferable skills and qualities
