It seems too good to be true, right? More often than not, an employer talks the talk, proudly proclaiming they offer “Flexible Working Hours” and “Work From Home Opportunities”, and the reality is far from it. Not the case at Oh So Social.
I started working at Oh So in 2017. My son was just about to turn one, I was coming to the end of my maternity leave and job-hunting after a part-time working request was denied by my previous employer. I applied for the Out of Hours Social Media position, which was advertised as work from home, evenings and weekends. It sounded perfect to fit around life with a toddler.
Fortunately, I got the job! Since the summer of 2017, my role has grown to encompass so much more than just the Out of Hours position, including happily taking on the responsibility of being Oh So Social’s in-house Marketing Manager, and helping out on client accounts too. But I still work primarily from home, choose my own hours and enjoy spending time with my family. A true work/life balance.
We’re now hiring again, for both a part-time Social Media Account Executive, and maternity cover for my role as Marketing Manager as I look forward to welcoming my second little one (and our first Oh So baby!)
Both roles are truly as flexible as they are advertised. We have recently moved towards becoming a remote team, so you can work from home, a café, the train, the beach, wherever; as long as the work gets done, why should it matter where or when you do it? You could be at your most creative and productive at 10pm, or need to fit your working hours around childcare and the school run.
A flexible approach means that we get the best talent around without being restricted by the 9-5, and you enjoy a work/life balance that actually works for you. Everybody wins.
