We want to inspire women, and parents, about the flexibility of Salesforce Careers and encourage them to launch a career in the Salesforce eco-system


This week we have launched our #ParentsFlexUp Campaign to raise awareness of the flexible career opportunities available to parents. There are Parents who are surviving not thriving in the world and together we can ‘change lives for the better’ by helping parents to live out their best lives.

Parents may be sacrificing precious time with their family or loved ones, commuting long distances, working unsociable hours, not realising their potential – unaware of another way of living and working. There are many reasons why parents want to flex their career to accomplish their range of goals. 

Following the pandemic we are seeing the Great Resignation wave as people desire more flexibility as they strive for a different life, whilst companies are fast realising they need to offer to flexible policies and opportunities to attract and retain staff. In the age of changing desires it’s important to understand what parents want to make sure you are offering the right package. Based on a recent poll, the number 1 priority was remote working, followed by 2 ) flexible hours, 3) remote and flexible hours followed by 4) hybrid working and part-time came 5th on the list.

Flexible Career Opportunities

Many parents are considering their flexible career options and a career within the Salesforce eco-system is definately one to consider. 

Back in 2016 when we launched Supermums we already recognised that many Salesforce roles were already pretty flexible which made it a great career route for mums looking for flexible work. Roll on to 2022 and the flexibility has just exploded following the pandemic as it changed people’s possibilities and desires. With Salesforce CRM being a cloud based software it really is possible to work remotely some if not all of the time.

Parents have seen the light by deciding to retrain on the Supermums Salesforce Admin Programme and successfully launch their Salesforce career and they exclaim how much it has changed their life for the better.  Create your #ParentsFlexUp Career Plan with our 5 day Salesforce Career Challenge.

Salesforce Champions Flexibility throughout the Eco-System

Salesforce always sets the pace as the inspirational company and other companies follow suit

“For the past two years, we’ve moved to a #SuccessFromAnywhere strategy to attract and retain the very best talent. One way we’re doing this is by adding more remote roles to our workforce. In fact, ‘remote’ became our number one hiring location in 2021. By focusing on the way we hire, rather than where we hire, we’re tapping into new talent — broadening our search beyond city centers and welcoming incredible talent from new communities and geographies.”

Nathalie Scardino, Executive Vice President of Global Recruiting, Salesforce

At Supermums Recruitment we have seen many companies from corporates to boutique consultancies and customers implement new remote and hybrid strategies that support employees to live out their best life whilst also feeling inclusive.
