Role when joined:

Delivery Consultant


Why did you choose expand?

I chose to join Expand because I was able to achieve what I was looking for: an environment which was “grown up” (unlimited holidays, flexible working), where I could have a good work-life balance, yet still have a successful career.


How do flexible hours and being part time support you?

An ability to work part-time and qualify for flexible working is a great benefit, which means I do not have to put my career on hold while being a Mum. It allows me to have the career growth without having to compromise by not seeing my baby grow up and missing out on being there when she reaches her milestones.

What are your ambitions?

My ambition is to be happy and successful; what this means to me now is to have a good work/life balance where I can still have a career, yet can also be fulfilled in my family life. This is not to say that I will always want to work part-time but it is absolutely amazing to be able to have this option at this time. It is 21st century and who said we – women – can’t have it all?
