Remote working: Freelance Parents Network

Freelance Parents Network

In the spirit of promoting remote and flexible working initiatives, I’m blogging about the Freelance Parents Network (FPN), a kind of introduction agency (but not an employment one) run by freelance parent and writer Rosalind Kent. At present, posting a profile and/or job is free, which is good news for small businesses. 

If you are a parent working freelance, all you have to do is to submit a bio/CV to As this is a general job portal, you can be working in any business/sector, whether you are a qualified hairdresser, party planner, IT professional, accountant or freelance writer. 

The FPN will match you to a suitable vacancy and/or you will receive emails and tweets of various opportunities. If these alerts won’t be any good to you, think of your circle of friends... you might know somebody just right for the job. The freelance jobs offered are home based or inhouse. I'd have liked to see more of a remote stance, but I suppose it's sensible to cover all the bases.

Let’s hope that the original geographical focus (Kent area) will spread to cover the whole of the UK - so far there have been a few vacancies advertised in other counties, which is encouraging.
