Women often have slightly different requirements when it comes to a job search: flexible hours, a later start in the morning, family-friendly policies, and companies with policies around diversity and inclusion can all be considerations for women, especially those who may have small children or other demands on their time outside of their working lives.
A company that understands, supports, and actively champions its female employees is an attractive prospect.
