Confessions of a working mum: Why I left TV to work in PR
After a 10-year career in television production, working on prime-time programmes such as Strictly Come Dancing, Dispatches, Watchdog, The Undateables and 24 Hours in A&E, I left the small screen and started a career in PR.
Following a planned pregnancy for the first time, a big worry was how I was going to juggle motherhood and a freelance career in documentary production, which was so demanding, competitive and unpredictable.
I wrote a candid account for PR Week detailing my transition from TV into the PR world – Confessions of a working mum: Why I left TV to work in PR, and have been absolutely overwhelmed by the response from women in the TV industry. So many other female TV freelancers have responded with similar experiences and stories, which tells me loud and clear that there is a huge demand for support from working mums who want to continue their careers in TV production.
