Extortionate childcare costs and the lack of flexibility in the UK work place mean that at least 1.2 million mothers are staying at home through necessity rather than choice.
In 2014, Nikki Cochrane and Kathryn Tyler founded social enterprise, Digital Mums to address this problem.
Digital Mums aims to turn mothers into the best social media managers on the market and then matches them with organisations who need their help. Their training has been designed with and for mums. And the skills that mums acquire allow them to set their own hours and work from anywhere.
