Speaking to The Candidate for International Women's Day, Kerry Carrick, Strategic Performance Director at Space & Time, tells us how she has managed to find the balance between a successful career in a Digital Marketing Agency with an often hectic home life!
Kerry Carrick - Strategic Performance Director at Space & Time
Women are inspirational!
Most of my clients are females holding a senior management position within the housebuilding sector, a traditionally male dominated industry, and I take inspiration from each and every one of them. Space & Time are driving forward with female representation in management, the business recognises challenges females face, has a progressive workplace culture and has developed support policies such as mental health and wellbeing and menopause support.
Finding positives in the challenges
Whilst working through the pandemic has been the most challenging time of my working life, it has brought some positives – the introduction of flexible hours and hybrid working has been a great benefit, it makes managing a busy home and work life that much easier. Thinking back, if I’d have been able to incorporate flexible working and hybrid work from home into my working week when my son was younger, I may have felt more confident in pushing forward with my career, not feeling like I had to choose one over the other.
That’s why the International Women's Day movement is so important – giving women the confidence to believe they are worthy of their professional capacity, that their personal situation and experience is valuable and having the skills to balance a hectic family life with a career is something to be celebrated!
Thank you Kerry!
