The article refers to the concept of work and family conflict as the basic one. The goal of this article is to present the work and family reconciliation model for young families which is based on the qualitative research data findings (narratives, semi-structured interviews and focus group). The present-day individuals tend to take on many roles and responsibilities related to their work and family life, which definitely leads to work and family conflict. Representatives of young families seek to improve their professional life and confront diverse challenges forcing them to modify career. Employers’ positive attitude and supportive role here is very significant, as well as clear need for the involvement of career counsellors and human resource specialists into the process of work and family conflict facilitation. The intention of the research was to analyse: the possibilities to reconcile work and family requirements for young families with children (under 12); ability to solve problems related to family needs; role tensions related to solving problems and possibilities for their reconciliation.
