How I pre­pared to re­turn to work

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Work Matters -

Natalie Zilka, 38, mum of two is the client ser­vices man­ager at Ac­tive Property In­vest­ing (www.ac­tive­prop­er­ty­in­vest­ing.com.au) “I took 11 months’ ma­ter­nity leave af­ter hav­ing my sec­ond child. I knew I wanted more flex­i­bil­ity so I met with my man­ager and ne­go­ti­ated the days and hours I would work. She was very un­der­stand­ing. I started off by work­ing two days a week and re­cently switched to three days a week. Although I work from home, I do have face-to-face meet­ings in the of­fice from time to time. What I love most about this ar­range­ment is that if I need to at­tend an event at my son’s kindy, I can take the morn­ing off and make up the hours later on.”
