Recruitment expert Hayley Taylor and Pitman Training are among those throwing their weight behind the Working Mum of the Year 2011 contest, which will give hard-working mothers the chance to win prizes such as a family villa holiday.

According to the competition's organisers, the purpose of the award scheme is to celebrate the achievements which working mums have made in recent times.

Ms Taylor said that it can be tricky for mums to work while taking care of their families.

She stated: "I have huge admiration for all working mums but we are looking to find one special one who can provide inspiration and support to others."

Olympian Colin Jackson and Ms Taylor will reveal the identity of the working mum of the year during an awards ceremony next month.
