A new report has found that 56% of working mothers are considering taking on second jobs to help meet rapidly rising living costs.
The Working Mums Report, questioned working mothers across Britain about the challenges they face in juggling home and work commitments and found that the majority are struggling.
The survey revealed:
Jamie Stewart, managing director of catalogue company Kleeneze, said: “Our report shows the pressure that working mums face. They are torn between the desire to be there for their children and providing the income needed to meet the mounting costs of family life.
“This is reflected in the increase in enquiries we’ve received from working mums who want to top up their salary.
“But many are also coming to us because they need more flexibility than their current job offers. They want to be able to work around family life and have the freedom to choose their hours and many companies still don’t cater for their needs.”

Even with a well-paid job, Stuart Heard found that ever-increasing bills were leaving him and his family with very little money for anything else. Since joining Kleeneze, he’s gone on to replace his full-time income and more, allowing him extra time for family and to afford the extras that really make up a life.

A recent study of 1,000 students, by home shopping firm Kleeneze, also found that 40% of students questioned said they couldn’t afford to go to university without a part-time job and that one in ten had to take on two jobs around their studies.
Almost a third (29%) of those questioned expect to have more than £20,000 in debt when they graduate and 31% expect to move back in with their parents.
Jamie Stewart, managing director for Kleeneze, said: “As the cost of going to university continues to rise, students are reliant on part-time jobs to supplement their student loans.
“However, traditional student jobs often don’t provide the flexibility they need, which leaves them with a difficult juggling act to deal with and it’s prompted some to look at alternative earning opportunities.
“We’ve seen enquiries from 18 to 20 year olds increase more than ten-fold in the last year as a result. Many are signing up to become Kleeneze distributors, because they want to control the hours they work and their earnings.”
The survey also revealed that 46% of students would like to be their own boss when they finish university and a fifth of those polled had been inspired by shows such as Dragon’s Den to become an entrepreneur.
Jamie added: “There seems to be a real ambition in today’s students to run their own business. At Kleeneze we give people the opportunity to work for themselves, with the support of our network behind them. It’s given some of our student distributors a taste for being their own boss and some have gone on to work for Kleeneze full time after graduating.”
