Become an advice line volunteer

“It feels great when I end a call knowing that I have helped a woman with a pregnancy or motherhood related issue”.

Katryn, PTS volunteer & HR Manager


We’re not going to sugar-coat it, things aren’t great for working parents and pregnant women. It can feel frustrating and a bit depressing at times, but by being part of the PTS volunteer team, you get to turn that frustration and anger into something positive. In the last year the fantastic volunteers on our advice line spoke to over 4,255 women, providing around 60 hours of support every week. Thousands of women need our support and we are looking for brilliant HR professionals who want to help PTS #BreakTheBias


What we need from you;

  • Two hours of your time each week
  • A real desire to help end the Motherhood penalty
  • A Level 7 CIPD qualification

What you can expect from us:

  • Training and onboarding before you start
  • 1-2-1 drop-in sessions and support from the core team
  • Training and workshop sessions throughout the year
  • Access to our volunteer events calendar and a dedicated online space
  • A support network of other experienced HR professionals and a legal team


“I have been volunteering on the helpline for Pregnant Then Screwed for approximately 4 months. Women call the helpline to get advice on their employment rights and it’s my job, along with around 100 other volunteers, to advise them on their rights and what their next steps should be. 

Often it can be that women are not aware of their rights, or that companies are not aware of their obligations. Sometimes it’s just a case of explaining their rights and advising on how to handle their situation best, but it can be that the situation requires legal advice, in which case I refer them to the legal team. 

I am supported by a great team of other volunteers who have vast amounts of experience in this area- it’s great to share knowledge and advise each other”.
