About us

About Working Parents Connect

Working Parents Connect is a digital recruitment platform for all Australian parents seeking flexible employment, support services and resources to enable them to be their best selves at work and at home.

We are a team of working parents – all working flexibly and remotely, proving that successful business outcomes don’t necessarily have to be measured by time spent in the office. Collectively, we bring a winning blend of industry knowledge and expert skills to Working Parents Connect and operate on the belief that you CAN have it all; success at home as well as at work.

In 2011, a niche recruitment agency called JustMums Recruitment was launched to address a pivotal service gap in the market; a lack of specialist career support for working mothers. They were the first agency of its’ kind in Australia and successfully connected hundreds of working mums and mums returning to work with flexible jobs. They won a string of awards for their work too. In 2018, JustMums acquired digital jobs board Working Mothers Connect, an online platform connecting job-seeking mothers with family friendly career opportunities and providing like-minded employers with the opportunity to advertise.

With a changing landscape of work, a big focus on gender equality and to address a significant spike in the number of working dads contacting these brands to support them with flexible employment too, the decision was made to merge the existing JustMums Recruitment and Working Mothers Connect businesses and rebrand to Working Parents Connect.
