Osborne Changing Lives – Maggie’s Story

We know that changing jobs is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your lifetime. We also know that finding the right job can have a huge positive impact on your life and wanted to share some of the real life experiences from candidates whose lives have changed for the better after they found a job that they really loved.

You can read more about Maggie’s story and our Changing Lives campaign below.
A special mention and thank you to Maggie for sharing her story with us.


I had been with my previous employer for years before I got sick with breast cancer in 2020. It was obviously a really stressful time in my life, so I took some time out to focus on my health and get better. The country was in the thick of Covid at the time so when the opportunity to take redundancy came up, I took it.

Many of my colleagues had since moved on and I didn’t want to go back to the office when so many of the people I knew were no longer there so I took that extra time to focus on me and my family and figure out what the next step was going to look like for me.

After a while I decided it was time to go back to work because I was really missing the routine and the interaction with colleagues. I was searching for something suitable for a long time and had almost given up hope when Valerie from Osborne called.

I was delighted when she told me that there was a part time position available that she felt would be a perfect fit for me. It was of course pretty dauting going back to work after being out for a while but the support I had was great. I now work from home part time and it’s just so lovely to be in a routine again and it’s great to have that work life balance especially with my children.

My health is good at the moment which is great and I’m off out tonight to meet some of my new colleagues for a meal which is lovely. I’m delighted with how things are working out!

I also can’t thank Valerie from Osborne enough who has been so supportive to me throughout this whole process!

Thank you Valerie and thank you Osborne #ChangingLives
