Planning for Children, Flexible Work and Side Hustles - with Catherine Brooks

In this episode of Gatehouse Insights for Gatehouse Legal Recruitment, I speak with Catherine Brooks who is a principal specialising in workplace relations at a Melbourne based law firm.

When Catherine had her son, Remington (Remy) she experienced first hand the benefits of an innovative workplace that offered flexible work arrangements that actually worked.

Catherine has been able to use this experience to provide advice in her work at Moores, her Facebook group ‘Help a sister out’ and the various publications she writes for.

Catherine is also the Co-Founder of Natural Supply Co, Australia’s best site for luxe natural and organic products. She is an advocate, child safety expert and keynote speaker. Check out Catherine’s full list of experience and services at her community site, Catherine Brooks.

What I love about Catherine is that there are no complaints, no excuses and most of all if she wants something she works for it.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode of Gatehouse Insights:

— Planning for parenthood in the legal profession.

— Flexible work arrangements are not set and forget

— Not losing touch with work while on maternity leave

— Removing the stigma of disability

— How side gigs can help you be a better lawyer
