Launched in 2014 by Nikki Cochrane and Kathryn Tyler, Digital Mums’ pioneering online training upskills mums with in-demand social media and digital skills, so they can find flexible and rewarding roles that sync with family life.
Digital Mums supports mums and businesses by addressing two issues. The digital skills gap: 12.6 million adults currently lack basic digital skills. And, maternal unemployment: discrimination forces 54,000 new mothers and pregnant women out of their jobs every year. Digital Mums’ is the creator of the #WorkThatWorks Movement, which aims to create a societal shift in the way flexible working is viewed and consign the current ‘9 to 5 coat-on-chair’ culture to the past. The company itself benefits from a 100% flexible working policy. Only 14% of employees are full-time and office based; 86% work part-time and remotely; 17% never step foot in the office.
At Tropic, we believe in empowering beauty. From using innovative, 100% naturally derived ingredients to create your favourite skincare and beauty products, to our unwavering vegan and cruelty free ethics. So it’s not hard to believe that Lord Sugar invested to become a 50/50 partner back in 2011!
We are now the fastest growing beauty company in the UK and this is why we need YOU to help share the green beauty revolution to keep up with this incredible growth.
Empowering women is at the heart of everything we do. From allowing women to pay for the little extra’s in life like a family holiday to becoming their own boss and working on their terms, around their families.
No contracts or sale targets, by sharing the products you love, you go from a beauty lover to a business owner! LOVE IT, SHARE IT, EARN FROM IT! It really is as simple as that!
