Australia’s leading parenting website, the Bub Hub has launched another online first in Australia with a Jobs & Career portal specifically designed to meet the needs of parents.
The Bub Hub has partnered with Part Time Online, Just Be! and Mums in Business to provide an unparalleled resource for family-friendly jobs and work from home parents.
With near full employment, talented parents are needed in the workplace to help continue Australia’s economic growth and help reduce the skills shortage.
“Many employers now see job sharing as a valid means of employment and parents are the logical, valuable people to fill this gap,” says Brad Lauder, co-founder of The Bub Hub.
The Jobs & Careers portal on the Bub Hub lists current job vacancies from around Australia. The job listings and job search facilities on the site are sourced from family-friendly employment agencies, Just Be! and Part Time Online.
Just Be! lists employers who are genuinely committed to working with women, and mothers in particular, and they understand their needs and know it is important to offer things like child care and flexible work hours to attract and retain talented women.
Part Time Online offers Australia’s leading selection of part time, job share, flexible, contract and casual positions. With rapid growth in this area, parents can now find the position that meets their needs from employers who are committed to them. Part Time Online has a job share community that you can become part of as well as a range of tools and case studies to help you in your journey.
The Jobs & Careers portal also has a section for mums and dads looking to set up a small business.
“If you have a good idea for a business you need advice and support and we are always happy to facilitate this process for parents,” said Brad Lauder in a recent telephone interview with Australian Women Online.
To give mums access to as much relevant information as possible, The Bub Hub has partnered with Mums in Business, a website that focuses on business mums and provides the tools, information and advice they need to start, run and develop a successful business.
“In our experience there have been so many small businesses that have been set up, but then haven’t worked because the people involved didn’t plan effectively. That’s why we felt it necessary to add business resources for parents,” Brad Lauder said.
Another useful feature of the Jobs & Careers portal is the Helpful Services for Working Parents section. This section of the portal lists information and contact details for:
- home-based business opportunities
- careers and business services
- childcare, nannies and babysitters
- home help
- grocery delivery services
- meal preparation and meal delivery services
- and more
The portal also includes articles and tips sheets for mums returning to the workforce after child rearing.
Although the website is a profitable business, after speaking to Brad Lauder, I have no doubt the Lauder’s passion and commitment to meeting the needs of Australian parents is genuine and I look forward to seeing what’s next for the Bub Hub.
