Feeling trapped in your job is one of the worst feelings out there. Nobody wants to feel like they don’t have the freedom to find a new job if they’re unhappy. Unfortunately, that’s becoming an unpleasant reality for more and more of us in the modern age – especially if you’re a parent.
According to a survey by the website WorkingMums, a massive 80% of mums feel trapped in their current jobs because they don’t think they’d find another with the same flexibility. Some 29% of respondents said they’d had a formal flexible working request turned down, with more than a quarter of these saying they were turned down for a reason that’s not allowed under current legislation. The survey also found more than half of all mothers believe their careers have not progressed since they had children.
That’s a bad situation for everyone, and people are justifiably unhappy about it. Fortunately, with AIMS there’s always a route to your freedom. AIMS Accountants work to their own schedule, and have all the flexibility they need to fit the demands of life around running a successful practice.
