It all started when…
Helen Wright, 9-2-3 Founder, spent a decade working as a journalist for the BBC and ITV, and 18 months running her own media training company. Helen then stopped working to have a family. But when the time came 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, Helen realised she was not alone. There were accountants, solicitors, architects, GPs, marketing execs, PR professionals... the list goes on. None were working. 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!
