Search for jobs that work for you

For many women returners, full-time work is simply not a realistic option, yet it is still often difficult to find skilled jobs, careers and opportunities that respect the other commitments and demands in our lives.

Timely has created a hub that respects the non-traditional working week. All the positions we list are either part-time, offer flexible working patterns, are job share or term time only.

Information Session: Financial Support for Working Parents

We recognise that one of the main barriers, challenges and cause of anxiety for many parents, and prospective parents, is the cost of childcare when returning to work.

With this in mind, we are bringing you this online event which is specifically aimed at parents considering or planning a return to work, as well as prospective parents.  It will look at financial support for working parents and focus on the key barrier to returning to work – childcare costs.

Many people don’t realise that even if they are working they may still be entitled to financial help.
Whether it’s a first-time parent wanting to know what support is available, someone considering
altering their hours of work or a family member living with a disability or additional needs. The
team of experts will be happy to work out what is best for each individual’s circumstances.

The information session will be an introduction to the Family Benefits Advice Team and the services that Employers for Childcare can provide including access to their helpline and personalised better off calculations.

It will cover the main forms of support available for help with childcare costs and the changes in these over the past few years.  Information will also be provided on the topics below.

The old system:

  • Childcare Vouchers
  • Tax Credits

The new system:

  • Tax Free Childcare
  • Eligibility rules and potential savings
  • Universal Credit (Inc the move to Universal Credit from existing benefits and its 2024-25 roll out)

This event is FREE to attend.  

Please share with anyone within your network that you think would benefit from attending. 

When? Wednesday 12th June- 10.30am -11.30am

For Employers

As well as supporting women, we also strive to support businesses by connecting them to a unique pool of talent, knowing that those connections will have a positive impact on their businesses and our economy.

We celebrate the businesses that are working hard to effect change. The businesses that want to hire women returners because they recognise the value in creating and recruiting for non-traditional 9-5 roles. They acknowledge the financial benefits, and the benefits that flexibility brings in terms of creating a positive work environment, culture, increasing staff retention rates and enhancing employee engagement.

If you have roles that need filled by top candidates, Timely can help you connect with skilled, experienced and professional women through our unique jobs board.

An incredible pool of talent to fill your open vacancies

By advertising your open roles on the Timely platform, you are tapping into candidates that are engaged, and who want to further their careers.

Many of the candidates on the Timely platform are here because they struggle to find part-time or flexible career opportunities through the regular channels, which is where we are so different.

We promote roles that have an element of flexibility, for employers that see the value in thinking outside the 9-5.

If you would like to post your jobs on Timely, or discuss the platform in more detail, please contact us by emailing info@timelycareers.com

This is a business for women and we’re not going to ignore the fact that progress for women returners needs to happen faster than it is. It’s our duty to get Timely out there and stop so many women feeling dispirited.
