The shortlisted candidates for the prestigious mumandworking 2015 Awards as supported by babyworld.co.uk have just been announced – and Little Pickles Markets are on the list, yay! Jessamine our owner has been shortlisted in ‘The Most Inspiring Business Parent 2015’ category sponsored by Amanda’s Action Club
mumandworking.co.uk is one of the UK’s leading flexible working websites offering a wealth of employment opportunities, advice and information.
This exciting awards programme celebrates the champions of flexible working – showcasing those businesses, associations and individuals (mums and dads!) demonstrating how a fulfilling career can be balanced with modern-day family life – enjoying parenting and working together.
The awards will be held at RBS, 280 Bishopsgate on September 22 2015 and are judged both by public vote and by an impressive panel of judges – leading business women and mums who understand all too well the challenges and the rewards of juggling work and being there for your family. VIP speakers and judges also include Annabel Karmel MBE, Jacqueline Gold and Caprice Bourret.
