Helen Wright, Founder

Helen Wright is typical of the candidates represented by 9-2-3. She has a History Degree from the University of Durham, she speaks Mandarin, she has a post-graduate diploma in Broadcast Journalism (covering aspects of law and public administration), she spent a decade working as a Journalist for the BBC and ITV, and 18 months running her own media training company.

She stopped working to have a family. During this time, amongst other things, she was Vice Chair of the local Pre School and joined the Parish Council. But when she wanted to return to the workplace, she found being tied to the school run was prohibitive, as was the cost of hiring a nanny to look after her three children.

Chatting to other mums in the playground, she realised she was not alone. There were accountants, solicitors, architects, GPs, marketing execs, PR professionals... the list goes on. None were working. What a brain drain! What a waste of talent and experience. Here was a bunch of over-talented women all keen to work – and not necessarily in their chosen speciality. They just wanted fulfilling jobs that fitted in around school hours. And here an idea was born!
