We understand how women feel, think and thrive

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.

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.

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.
