Careermums is the first online job portal in Singapore to list mainly part time jobs for working mothers in Singapore. You can also find freelance, flexible hours and other non-traditional full time employment opportunities on our portal. These jobs are of professional/executive positions level suited for PME mothers in Singapore.
In Singapore and many parts of the world, finding work life balance is a constant struggle for working mothers. MOM’s Labour Force Survey released in 2012 hints at this trend; of an estimated 418,000 economically inactive residents aged 25 to 64, an overwhelming majority were women, and only a small proportion intended to find work in the next two years.
Many reports have also pointed out that the labour participation of Singaporean women tends to fall much earlier in the course of their lifespan, when compared to their counterparts in other developed countries.
This trend of women getting out of the workforce prematurely has grave socio-economic implications; the issue needs to be explored fully and transformative strategies put in place to encourage and facilitate their return to work.
In Careermums, apart from listing jobs, we also encourage professional working and non-working mothers to register with us and indicate the type of part-time jobs or flexible work arrangements they prefer by creating a Resume Profile. A Resume Profile contains details such as educational level, past working experience, preferred working arrangements and allows employers to contact the mothers directly for any potential job openings.
