The Timewise Foundation is a Community Interest Company which achieves practical outcomes for people seeking flexible work, by running three core businesses: Timewise Jobs, Timewise and Women Like Us. We also run the national campaign Hire Me My Way, which aims to create a bigger and better jobs market for quality part-time and flexible roles. And we relentlessly promote the societal benefits of flexible hiring through research, public affairs, and media.
Across our services over the last 10 years, more than 80,000 people, predominantly mothers, have registered with us for advice or to find part-time jobs. More than 15,000 have directly accessed our careers advice and employability programmes, and we have helped over 5,300 into quality part-time work they can fit with family life.
We have also worked with over 4,000 businesses including SMEs, charities, high growth companies and leading employers such as EY, Virgin Money, Dixons Carphone, Diageo, and Lloyds Banking Group.
A little more about our businesses and projects…
An employer-facing service that helps businesses to unlock the benefits of flexible hiring. Timewise commissions research, shares insights and case studies on its website; runs a partnership programme for employers; provides bespoke training and consultancy; and runs the Timewise Councils accreditation scheme for local authorities.

Our jobsite dedicated entirely to flexible and part-time jobs. We encourage employers and recruitment agencies to advertise jobs that offer the flexibility available in the employment market for those already in work. Timewise Jobs provides employers with access to a visible skilled candidate pool for flexible roles.
WOMEN LIKE US
The leading specialist for women returners in London, providing online and offline career coaching and support. We run a bursary scheme for parents and carers in low income households, alongside a paying service of workshops for those who do not meet the means-testing threshold. Our services ensure that women needing part-time work have the skills to access jobs that match their level of experience. Women Like Us also undertakes a range of innovation projects and pilot work which has influenced public service delivery for women with children.
HIRE ME MY WAY
Our campaign to create a fairer jobs market for people who need to work part-time or flexibly. Employers who join Hire Me My My commit to opening up more of their jobs to part-time and flexible working arrangements, from the point of hire. The campaign’s goal is for 1 million quality part-time and flexible jobs to be advertised annually in the UK (three times the current level). People who want to work flexibly are also asked to sign-up to the Hire Me My Way campaign, to help drive interest from more employers.
