From bumps to teens, Mum’s Guide To brings you local websites dedicated to everything for families and children in your town. Run by parents for parents, we currently have sites operating in Biggleswade, Harpenden, Hemel Hempstead, Hertford, Huntingdon, Romford, St Albans, St Neots and Welwyn, with a new site just launched in Hitchin!

Read on to find out more about working for Mum’s Guide To, and to get a flavour of  what some of our local sites are up to from their social media feeds.  If you’d like to join them and run a site for your town, get in touch or have a look below at the opportunities we have available to take over running an existing site.

Mum's Guide To is all about providing communities of parents and carers with a one-stop resource that gives them with everything they need to know about raising children in their town and surrounding area.

The secret of our success is that each of our sites focuses on a single town and are run by Site Managers who live there and genuinely know what's going, resulting in sites that are relevant and comprehensive.

We don't just focus on the under 5s or school age, we cover all ages from bumps to teens.

And unlike other many other publications we don't just cover activities and events. We include education, childcare, health & wellbeing, local facilities & services, party providers, holiday clubs and other local businesses who have something to offer parents.

We don't just populate the site then sit back.

We seek out new businesses and events to add, we keep the existing content up-to-date and we use social media to keep our users informed about what's going on and the latest community news.

Our Site Managers are given the freedom to run their sites in the way that they think is best to meet the needs of their community.

Flexible working means you can do the hours that suit you and your family.

Advertising banners, enhanced listings and other promotional spaces are available to businesses, and our Site Managers make money through a generous commission on these sales.

Most Site Managers tell us that it's not about the money though, but the enjoyment of running the site on a day to day basis, connecting with the community, networking with local businesses and making a difference.

Whilst we don't provide any specific training courses, we have lots of guides and knowledge available and our Site Managers learn lots of new skills "on the job".

Some of our site managers will write articles, blogs or reviews for the first time and find that they have a flare for it. Most make use of the wealth of freely available apps and tools to create their own promotional graphics and videos for use on social media and the website.

For others the chance to join local business networks opens up opportunities. Some find they love the marketing and social media side and enhance what they are doing and learning by attending workshops and talks.

It's a great way to learn new things and we encourage everyone to embrace it and have a go!
