Working vs Parenting – The Great British Juggle

The Great British Juggle

“Women and men often don’t return to work after having children due to the cost of childcare, and these results show that this is a rising concern in the UK. However, direct selling roles are a great way to stay in work and earn money whilst offering flexible hours so you can spend time with your children and save money on expensive childcare alternatives.”

“The growth and development opportunities within direct selling companies means that women don’t have to compromise and can develop careers without returning to a corporate full-time role.’’

Lynda Mills, The Direct Selling Association
