Karen’s passion is creating a more flexible job market so that professionals can continue to develop their careers at the same time as finding the space they need to lead fulfilling personal lives. Following her early career in the public and charity sector, it was the personal challenge of progressing a senior career on a part time basis that led her to co-found Women Like Us and later Timewise. Karen launched the UK Power Part Time List in 2012 as part of her mission to change people’s attitudes about what kind of jobs can be worked on a part time basis. She regularly speaks to media and to executives in UK companies about growing an agile flexible recruitment market.

Emma had a successful career in media skills training and documentary production before founding Women Like Us in 2005, together with Karen Mattison. This award-winning service put women in touch with flexible and part time job opportunities, building Emma’s expertise as a sought-after spokesperson on how flexibility can provide a solution to diversity in the workplace. She went on to develop the Timewise group of businesses with Karen. Emma leads on the role that flexible working can play in helping public service organisations to attract talent and work within increasingly stretched budgets, whilst also tackling labour market inequalities for the communities they serve.
Following a career in publishing and management consultancy, Charlotte studied for an MBA and PhD on the subject of flexible job design.
