SKILL short­ages can be solved in part if more em­ploy­ers take a flex­i­ble attitude to moth­ers when they re­turn to work af­ter tak­ing ma­ter­nity leave, a re­cruiter says.

Ta­lent2 has iden­ti­fied a trend in Ade­laide against em­ploy­ing women who want to work part time when they re­turn to the work­force.

This means busi­nesses will miss out on highly skilled staff and women may stall their ca­reer and over­all skill de­vel­op­ment.
