The shortlist for the prestigious mumandworking 2011 Awards have just been announced – and Rhea Alton is amongst them!

The 2011 mumandworking awards are organised by website www.mumandworking.co.uk and reward and recognise the companies and individuals that make flexible working possible. The aim is to show that family-friendly employment not only supports family life but gives real benefits to the companies involved.

Sarah Beeny, TV presenter, author, entrepreneur and Mum, commenting on the mumandworking awards said, “As a mum of four boys, aged 6,5,2 and 1 – I completely understand the importance of flexible working and the value of spending time with your family. It’s great that the mumandworking awards celebrate the people who are making this possible for parents across the UK and its great to see so many successful mums out there taking part ”

There are 7 awards categories to recognise working parents, flexible employers and parents in business.

Over 300 nominations in total were made this year. And Rhea Alton of Journalism and PR from Shrewsbury, Shropshire has been shortlisted in the Self-Employed Parent of the Year category.

The judges, including multi-award winning business woman Wendy Shand of Tots To Travel, are now reviewing all shortlisted entries and the finalists will be announced in September.

All finalists will be invited to the awards ceremony at the BusinessMums Summit in Brighton on 10th October 2011 for a very special champagne awards ceremony hosted by Alexandra Watson the Happiness Coach who has appeared on TV’s The X-Factor. The winners will walk away with a selection of indulgent prizes worth over £3000 in total.
