"I’m sorry, you’ve ‘just’ been a Mum for the last 5 years"

Sound familiar? We’ve heard it too, which is why we decided to do something about it.

As a parent, making the decision to go back to work can be a very stressful one and there are a lot of things to consider. Although you have taken a career break and are currently ‘just’ a full-time parent, you know you still have so much to offer but the feedback from some companies and recruiters has dented your confidence.

Don't worry, we are here to help.

GPS Return was set up because our founder – Miranda Gregory – shared that same experience and realised that it was about time someone did something to help full-time parents return to work.

Our aim is to give you all the advice, confidence and encouragement you need to return to work and, to ultimately help you find the right job. Not only do we provide personalised advice, we also run workshops and provide coaching on a range of topics and all designed to help you go back to work. 

On top of this, GPS Return works with employers to educate them on the benefits of hiring returning parents and how promoting a flexible work environment is a win-win for everyone.

GPS Return approached me at a time when I was unsure how to proceed with my career. Having just had a baby, and worked hard to reach the stage in my career I had gotten to, I was loathe to take a lower skilled, or unskilled position to get the hours that I required with my new family in tow.
I was worried that employers wouldn’t understand that I still had lots to give, just not as much time.

They listened to what I needed, which was no short list if I’m honest, and approached me with two appropriate positions, I received two offers, and I’m gainfully employed part-time in a senior role which uses all of my skills.

I’m really pleased, and their no-nonsense honest approach was music to my ears. I myself have worked in recruitment and there are a lot of people out there doing it badly - GPS Return is a success story!
