Carlean Property Management is a boutique residential property management company.
Who is your Successful Mum and what do they contribute to the business?
Our Successful Mum is Natasha Sullivan. Natasha’s role is 50/50 split between accounts and property management. Natasha has experience of property management and she brings lots of ideas and experience.
Why do you support the work Successful Mums does?
I think it’s an excellent concept. Most women want to work flexibly, so to be able to have this option can only be beneficial for the employer and employee. I had my first daughter at 16 and I’ve always had to work around my children, which was hard at times.
Connecting skilled women with local employers is a fantastic idea. Offering training and career advice is the missing link to employers tapping into these skilled women. I have been very impressed by the calibre of CVs from advertising my role on the Successful Mums Jobs Board. I can’t recommend Successful Mums highly enough.
As a business owner, mother and grandmother, I work flexibly for my own work-life balance. I understand how flexible working can be an asset for a business and a huge help to working parents.
I remember that horrible feeling when a school event is on that you want to attend, but you have to be at work. I want to work with my ‘successful mum’, recognising and removing those stresses – this will allow her to enjoy her time at work without missing out on any of the really important events in her children’s lives.
Natasha is a great asset to my business and I believe as a business owner, flexible working is the way forward.
Not only do I help my employees achieve the right work-life balance, I am also responding to customers with flexible needs.
What top tip do you have for other businesses thinking of flexible and part-time working?
Just go for it – you have nothing to lose. There are lots of highly educated, extremely professional women out there looking for part-time or flexible work. I’m sure if you give it a try you will wonder why you didn’t do it years ago!
