Jobs For The Girls: The Prison Psychologist

I bloody love the Jobs For The Girls series.  I love finding out what goes on in the day-to-day lives of women who have pursued career paths I never fathomed in my careers centre at school.  The lovely Katy passed me Julia’s contact details after a shameless dig on Twitter to find some readers with [...]

Clare Barker Wells Photography

This may seem like old news, to those of you who follow me on instagram, or facebook, but now seemed like as good a time as any to say that Clare Barker Wells Photography is now officially open for business! It feels pretty huge saying that, especially as only two years ago I’d never picked [...]

All mothers are full time mothers

When Belinda  (whose own company is opening its doors today, of all days) sent us this post I found myself nodding along and agreeing, despite having written a post just two weeks earlier with a completely different point of view. She writes so eloquently, and gives such powerful reasons for her choices, that I can’t [...]

Jobs for the Girls – HGV Mechanic

We have Lucy Stendall to thank for this amazing Jobs for the Girls post, as Kathleen sent this in after Lucy did a shout out on twitter. Kathleen’s story is one of my favourite ones yet. I love how Kathleen found this job, almost by accident, before realising that she actually loved it. I love [...]

Jobs For The Girls – Head of Sudan Team at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

I first came across Caroline when she sent us this post for International Women’s Day.  I got slightly over-enthusiastic about it, and received a lot of mockery from my nearest and dearest as a result.  You see, they know it’s a job I’d love to have.  And whilst I am also a civil servant, working [...]

Jobs for The Girls: The Butcher

Lucy Stendall sent us a message a little while back asking if she could write a Jobs for The Girls post. Not for herself (we’ve already done that), but for a job that she has always found fascinating (she’s told me many a time that if she wasn’t a photographer, or a lawyer, this would [...]

Jobs For The Girls: The Personal Stylist

Given that I’m the sort of person who’s brain switches off the minute anyone starts talking about “clashing prints”, and that my need to start mocking whenever anyone talks about  the latest trend is so innate it must be in my DNA, I was very, very excited to start putting together a post on the [...]

Jobs for the Girls: Working From Home

This month’s Jobs For The Girls tackles something we’ve spoken about before on the blog,  something that grates with many of us; the inflexibility of the workplace.  How so many jobs expect you to be able to work from 9 until 5, how there is limited flexibility for parents with children, how much more productive [...]

Jobs For The Girls: The Family Lawyer

And, readers, we’re back with another Jobs for the Girls.  This is one of my favourite series on the blog.  It gives us a chance to get behind what makes women choose the fascinating careers they choose, what drives them, what the job involves, and aims to either inspire you to try a different career [...]
