Legal profession is not mum friendly
The legal profession is the least mum-friendly career for women wanting to return to work, it is claimed. A survey for the Training and Development Agency suggested mums thought a career in education was their best route back to employment after having children. None of the mums questioned said they believed the legal sector was an option for them.
But Woolley & Co lawyers disagree. "Woolley & Co is not like other law firms. There is much more flexibility for the clients - they don't have to fit around the opening hours of a high street office for example. That makes working arrangements much more flexible for us lawyers too."
"One of the reasons I chose to work with Woolley & Co was to work from a home office. It allows you to get a better work/life balance. I can arrange to speak to clients in the evening or at weekends if it suits them and meanwhile I am free to meet my family commitments when I need to."
"It's a shame that more practices don't operate this way." Woolley & Co is recruiting family lawyers - mums welcome. For more details read the vacancies section on our website or contact Andrew Woolley.
