Our Story

MY NAME IS MELA, AND I AM THE MUMMA BEHIND JOBS FOR MUMS

As a new mum of two under two, I very quickly understood why flexibility was the number 1 motivator for women with kids.

Although I was lucky with my employer at the time, it became apparent that for many mums and caregivers, flexibility was a negotiation point, and the outcome heavily influenced your next steps. Jobs For Mums asks the question, what would happen if we made true flexibility available to families?

Instead of focusing on offering flexibility as a tick-the-box option, we start thinking about what is it that families need to live happier and more productive lives.

What we do

We are not a recruiter. We are a movement!

JOBS FOR MUMS IS A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE. CREATED BY MUMS FOR PARENTS WITH THE MISSION OF DRIVING POSITIVE CHANGE FOR FAMILIES, BUSINESSES AND NZ INC

Jobs for mums exists to help NZ workplaces catch up to the demands of modern family life. This is important because the choices companies make today will be reflected in the New Zealand we see tomorrow.

We are doing this by creating NZ’s first digital marketplace that connects forward-thinking employers with parents looking for work.

Jobs listed on the site will be suitable for all mums looking for employment, primarily focused on offering them flexible work that works for them and their whanau.

We also provide advice, guidance, and support for those looking to return back into the workforce.
