I have been with Westfield just over 10 years and within this period my wife and I have expanded our family and we have had 3 daughters. Being a parent to 3 small children and working a highly demanding role had its challenges and the business always supported me from the paternity leave to the odd day taking leave to look after a sick child.
But the crucial support came in when I needed to support my wife at home with daily life. The business allowed me to adopt flexible working for a period of time shortly after our second daughter was born which allowed me to take the burden off my wife with school drop-offs and pick-ups. Mental health is so important and the business understood this and supported us through our journey which we are thankful for.
