Returning to work after having children can be a daunting prospect however there are jobs that can fit around the needs of your family.
“Jobs for Parents” are family-friendly positions that may be part-time, flexi-time, term-time, temporary contracts or even working from home.
If you have a vacancy to fill and would like to advertise the role on Scarborough & Whitby Mumbler then please contact us here.
The Universities of York and Durham are looking for mothers and infants to take part in a new study looking at children’s development of early language and emotions. We are looking to understand how infants start to communicate and understand their socio-emotional world in two different cultural contexts: the UK and Uganda.
We are looking for interested parents with infants who will be either 3 or 4 months old in August or September 2021.
We would like to visit you in your home when your baby is 3 or 4 months old for one hour. We would then visit you again when they are 16 months old for approximately two hours. During the visits, we would come to your home (covid-19 restrictions permitting) and play a fun set of short games with you and your child. You would also answer a short online questionnaire about your child’s vocabulary. Safety measures will be in place to minimise Covid-related risks to all participating families. We will flexibly arrange visits to suit the individual routine and needs of each family and will compensate you for your time with vouchers at the equivalent rate of £10/hour. You can choose from a range of vouchers. Our most commonly requested include Amazon, love2shop and various high street brands.
Below are statements from some of the mothers currently participating in a similar longitudinal study – the Baby Babble/Babble Buddies project – which is run by members of the same team:
“My daughter loves visits from the team. The visits are always fun, engaging and bring a smile to her face.”
“It has been fascinating (and sometimes very surprising) learning more about our child as he grows. We are proud to be involved and to be helping further research in this important area.”
“It’s a great way to see my daughter’s development, and also know you are contributing to a bank of knowledge about child development too!”
“Being involved in Babble Buddies since my son was a little baby has been a totally fascinating and rewarding experience for us both. The games we play with the team are always engaging and fun and have provided me with a bit of an insight as to how different aspects of my son’s communication and social development might have progressed”
“The team have always been polite, friendly and calming, especially when visiting us at home. It has been fascinating to watch and share the development of our daughter.”
“I have found being part of the project an incredibly valuable experience – I’ve learnt things about my son that have surprised me (in a very positive way!) – words I didn’t know he knew and stages of development that I hadn’t realised he had reached. The team is professional, supportive and always willing to be flexible with dates/times of visits. I highly recommend getting involved.”
If you would like to participate or to find out more information, please contact Ellie via:
Text or WhatsApp: 07973174087
We will then send you more information about the study: if you are interested then we will arrange a phone call to check that you and your child will be eligible to join the study. To minimise travel we are particularly keen to hear from families who live in York, North Yorkshire, County Durham, Sunderland and Gateshead, particularly the following postcode areas YO, TS, DH, DL, HG, SR and NE1-11. However, if you live just outside of these postcode areas, please feel free to contact us and we can see if it is possible for us to visit you.
Join our team and make a difference to local people in Scarborough
Come join our family of CAREGivers who together make a positive difference every day. In our mission to be the UK’s most admired care company, we’re always on the lookout for new CAREGivers who will help us continue providing an outstanding service. All of our visits to clients last at least one hour so the clients you visit will get to know and trust you.
What does it mean to be a CAREGiver?
Our clients are people from all different walks of life who use our services in different ways. With some clients we provide companionship, spending time with clients doing what they love best. With others we deliver more hands-on care or support with more specific needs such as dementia, with duties including assisting with bathing and getting dressed.
Who can become a CAREGiver?
Whether you’ve worked in the care sector before or want to make the move into care, we have a role for you. We prize a warm heart and caring nature above previous experience, providing training and support to help you reach your full potential.

Maternity Voice Partnership (MVP)
Parent and family representatives are working in partnership with midwives, doctors and other health professionals to help improve future maternity care to women, partners, families and babies. Coast & Country Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) covers Scarborough, Filey, Whitby and Ryedale.
Volunteers Wanted to Support the Programme
For the programme to work successfully we would like to recruit some volunteers to gather information from other families.
This could be done in lots of different ways – through asking for feedback at meetings/groups you already attend, through looking at the results of the ongoing questionnaire, or through visiting clinical areas and feeding what you have found back into the main meetings.
We are aiming to collect feedback from all sorts of people who represent the wide variety of families across Scarborough, Filey, Whitby and Ryedale.
This will be an exciting time to raise awareness around the importance of the maternity services, to make sure that seldom heard voices are heard, and to contribute to future developments in maternity services.
If you would like to feed back, find out more about what is being discussed or would like to volunteer to help:
Please contact Ria Machin and SJ Barker on email@example.com

From time to time, I am asked to review classes, days out and other wierd and wonderful things!
This comprises of attending, taking photos, enjoying whatever it is and then writing a short review afterwards for the website which is then shared on social media.
I am hoping to get a few volunteers together that may like to do a few reviews for me? Your review will be published on the website. There will be no payment for your time but you will get whatever you are reviewing for free.
If you think this is something that you may like to get involved in, please do contact me HERE telling me how old your children are, where you live, any specific interests and what you use on Mumbler. Do send any questions you may have.
It is quite a good way to get back into work, keep your hand in during maternity leave or just experience some really cool things that you may not normally do.
