9-2-3 Jobs runs a programme of informal networking events, with meetings in London and across the Thames Valley.
The 9-2-3 Club aims to enable women to connect with one another, and be inspired by others who might be able to help further their ambitions. We line up a variety of speakers - from those campaigning for more women on boards of big businesses, to those who are successfully running their own business and HR directors working for progressive companies who are looking to recruit flexible talent. Some meetings will take place at the offices of big businesses, which will give members the valuable chance to step back into a workplace environment - and realise it's not scary - it's actually quite exciting!
These are designed to be fun and informal get-togethers, where we can share experiences and feel inspired and empowered to move our careers forward in a flexible way.
9-2-3 Club Launch at Westminster
The 9-2-3 Club launched last September with a call to action, at an event sponsored by Victoria Prentis MP at The House of Commons. Margot James MP (Minister for Small Business, Consumers and Corporate Responsibility) also came to lend her support to our flexible working agenda. Since then we've welcomed Sally Dicketts CBE to speak (she is Chief Executive of Activate Learning, which has a turn-over of around £54m); and enjoyed a behind-the-scenes look at the WI's Denman College where we brainstormed their latest fundraising campaign.
In March we visited the New St Square offices of Deloitte in London, where we learnt all about their fabulous scheme for Returners, and heard from someone who had been on the programme after a 12 year career break -who is now a permanent member of staff working flexibly. Inspiring stuff!
We are currently busy working on a full programme of events - with more sessions aimed at those who want to return to a corporate career, as well as CV workshops and updating your office tech skills days. We even have some venues earmarked which have crèche facilities!
