What we do

We are not a recruiter. We are a movement!

Jobs for mums is a not for profit, created by mums for parents with the mission of driving positive change for families, businesses and NZ Inc . 

Jobs for mum 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 reflective 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.

Why we do it

According to Ministry of Women- return to work findings in 2018. A large % of women were unemployed a decade after their first child.
0 %
Of low income mothers
0 %
40% of mothers with school or post school qualifications
0 %
30% of mothers with tertiary degrees

NZ’s Ministry of Women describes motherhood as biggest contributor to the pay gap.

  • On 26 August 2020, Statistics NZ announced that the gender pay gap in NZ was 9.5 percent.
  • Statistics NZ explains that underutilisation rates are equally as important as unemployment rates.
  • Underutilisation rates for males in NZ are 10.1%, compared against those of women being 14.7%.

Global women NZ outline a number of solutions to addressing this problem including ; flexible work, nurturing inclusive cultures and minimising the bias at all.

Our people are our everything. We know people are more efficient and creative when they are happy and healthy. We support them with what ever helps them bring their best self forward.
