Did you know here at My Gator Watch almost all of our team are made up of parents who work flexibly from home? Our founder Colleen Wong is an advocate for “family first, work later” and this fantastic work ethos has bred the best-reviewed GPS watch in the UK. Many of these reviews focus on our outstanding customer service team who yep, you’ve guessed it, work from home and look after their children all in one go! Terri, a mum of two daughters, works from home and is a much-loved member of our outstanding customer service team. This week she has given us an insight into what flexible work, and working for My Gator watch means to her.
You have no idea what this job means to me, but here you go I’ll list it:
Before this job, I had been out of work due to childcare and being a full-time Mummy. It’s hard to get back into work, but you gave me a chance. Because of this job I’ve not missed a second of Alicia’s development – first steps, I was there, first words, I was there, she is above and beyond her development levels because I am THERE!
I drop my eldest daughter Gabriella to and from school every day. This is a significant thing for her as I am her constant.
I can work while dressing Barbies and making tea.
I can pursue my love of sewing.
I make my own money, and I can take the kids to special places and buy them what they need.
This job has also enabled me to pay for treatment for my mum, and while it sadly didn’t work for her, it gave me and my sister hope during the most horrendous time of our lives. It also helped me to pay for her funeral while also allowing me to be there with her whenever she needed me.
I would not have had all these things without this job.
