#101 Big Careers, Small Children: Lucy McAuliffe

Big Careers, Small Children Podcast - ep101 - Lucy McAuliffe - Network Rail

How can you juggle your senior career when your children are born prematurely?

Our guest this week is Lucy McAuliffe, Stations and Security Director at Network Rail and parent to 5-year-old twins and a 16-month toddler.

Lucy and her wife’s twins arrived 8 weeks earlier than planned, not long after Lucy had started a new senior position.

She shares:

  • The reality of having premature children
  • Why the discretionary support you’re given at work can make all the difference
  • Advice on moving from 2 to 3 children
  • Working full time and managing perceptions at school drop off
  • Dealing with assumptions when you’re in a same-sex couple
  • How being a parent gives you a different lens on leadership

We hope you enjoy the conversation.
