About Us

Mums@Work is the first initiative of its kind in the region focused on helping mothers back into the work place after taking a career break. We are not only here to connect candidates and clients - we are here to guide, mentor and ensure that our mums have the skills and confidence to get the job that is right for them. For our clients, we are a route to a mass of super talented women who bring with them not only a wealth of experience, but also diversity and a strong work ethic to your team.

I have been in Dubai for 9 years and I put my career on hold to raise 3 beautiful children, who gladly and a little sadly, don't need their mummy as much as they used to.
