Successful Mums win big at the ERSA Employability Awards

Jane said her company has helped 4,500 women since being launched in 2014.

The company has now claimed the best partner prize at the seventh annual ERSA Employability Awards.

After winning the award, Jane said: “We are thrilled to receive this award to recognise the work we do with our partners. Working in partnership creates new ideas, increases reach and ultimately supports more women back to work.”

This years’ winners were judged by political thinker, Phillip Blond, The Sun employment page editor, Jane Hamilton, department for work and pensions official, Mark Staley, and Genius Within’s Tanya Weston.

Employment minister, Alok Sharma, added: “I want to thank and congratulate all of this year’s winners and runners-up, for all their fantastic work on behalf of jobseekers up and down the country.

“We have more people in work than ever before, but projects like these are making sure we spread that opportunity even further and provide vital support to those looking for work.”
