I used to work at a big 4 audit firm and regularly worked 60 hour weeks often working in the evening. My wife did the same and we both made the decision to love on to find a better work life as we planned to start a family.

Since then we have both made flexibility’s key factor in choosing our jobs and so far we have both been lucky in finding this in employers. I was allowed to go part time when my first was born and can work from home when I need to. My only issue is my job is 70 miles away so I spend too long away on the day. I made the decision 6 months ago to look for a job closer to home and in two weeks I start this new job so will hopefully have more time for family and me
