Jobs for Mums works like any other job board.

Step 1: Sign Up and create an account – It’s FREE!

Step 2: Apply for roles that interest you.

The difference is that our employers are family-friendly and often include additional benefits like work from home, additional leave, subsidised daycare to list but a few.

  • Work from home
  • Part-time
  • School hours
  • Full-time flexible
  • Freelance or Contract
  • One-off

Our positions range from casual to permanent. We cover over 36 career fields and growing.  Take your pick.

Currently, we are getting about 60-70 jobs posted a month, but we hope to increase this in the future.

The best thing to do is set up a job alert so that you can be notified when new jobs in your area get listed in your area.

Don’t worry, apply with confidence anyway! Many of our jobseekers have been out of employment for a few years and are motivated to get back in either because their child is now at school or daycare, they are finding the costs of living high, or are looking to make a career change.

Remember, parenthood is a great teacher of soft skills that can be transferred into many other professions.

We understand that daycare costs are a big factor for many families.

We support parents by advocating for more flexible work opportunities that might help reduce daycare costs. For Example;

  • Some of our roles can be done at non-peak times to alleviate childcare costs.
  • Some of our roles are entirely output driven so you can choose your own hours.
  • Some of our roles offer childcare benefits- especially in the education sector.

The employees that advertise roles with Jobs for Mums already know you have the most important job there is – being a parent!

Many of our employers give you the flexibility to either work from home or choose the hours that work for you and your family.

Our platform is for everyone and anyone looking for flexible work opportunities.

We work with many dads and other caregivers looking for a better way. Our goal is to make working easier for all parents and caregivers in New Zealand.
