Empowering mums back to work with social media management skills
1.2 million mothers are missing from the workplace and another million want to work more hours, but struggle to find flexible options that work around childcare.
Digital Mums runs an online learning course which trains them in essential digital skills such as social media management. They then connect these 'mums' with entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs to help to grow their businesses with a dedicated part-time social media manager.
Digital Mums is growing quickly. In under two years since incorporating, they've put through 150 students, had over 50 graduates with a 100% success rating and generated over £200k in revenue. In three years’ time they hope to have supported 1,000 women back into work. The project was supported by Nesta in 2014.
