Karen Mattison

Founder, Women Like Us & Timewise


I set up Women Like Us and later the specialist part time Recruitment site Timewise Jobs, because of my own challenge of finding interesting part time work that I could fit around my family. I realised that quality part time jobs were out there but they weren’t being advertised anywhere. I set up the two businesses as Social Businesses because I was really interested in the model of trading as a business to achieve social change….although before that my career background was in the Charity and Public Sector. We now have 35,000 candidates registered with us and have recruited part time jobs for thousands of employers
