Timely is a social enterprise created by the Women in Business NI Group. Our mission is to remove the obstacles, anxiety and challenges that women who want to return to work often face. We will enable and empower women, through training and a jobs board, to get back into work by connecting them to the right support and the right jobs, at the right time for them.
Women in Business is an integral part of The WiB Group. The WiB Group is an umbrella group of social enterprises that are dedicated in the mission to help create a prosperous, inclusive economy for Northern Ireland.
Through Women in Business, Diversity Mark, Timely Careers and Centre of Learning, The WiB Group is committed to driving positive change through connections, accreditations, employment opportunities and skills development. Join us in our mission, where the collective power of everyone’s contributions propels us towards a brighter, more equitable future for all.
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.

This Workshop will invite you to explore how to become more confident and resilient to “selling yourself as a Brand” to potential employers/stakeholders, etc. This is not a typical “how to market yourself” Workshop.
The facilitator, Leah McStravick, Director, Full Circle Management Solutions Ltd will show you how to deepen your own understanding of your EIQ (Emotional Intelligence) and how the continuous development of this will help to shape your own personal style and signature presence further.
This results in you standing out from the crowd. This workshop involves self-reflection, co-coaching and requires a degree of openness and the ability to be honest with yourself. You will leave with a shift in your thinking and a motivation for whom you want to be.
When? Wednesday 13th March – 10.00am – 12.00pm
Where? Herbert Smith Freehills | 3 Cromac Quay, Belfast BT7 2JD

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.Roseann Kelly, MBE, Timely
