Employer Overview

Welcome to Careermums!

We are the first job-portal in Singapore to cater for flexible or part time employment. Our job seekers are educated and professional mothers, many of them have at least a tertiary education and have worked professionally before. They belong to the untapped pool of talents who are looking for a career that suits their profile while managing motherhood.

Providing work flexibility is no longer just a cost to companies.

The Reality

MOM’s Labour Force Survey released in 2012 shows 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.

New Way of Maximising Talent

More employers are realising that facilitating integrated lives for their staff may soon become one of the most important aspect in retaining and attracting talent.

With strong support and the initiatives by the government, more companies and agencies are implementing flexi-work and reaping the benefits such as ease of hiring, better employee engagement and lower attrition rates.

About half of Careermums’ database is made up of full-time working mothers looking for non-full-time positions. This suggests that providing Flexible Work Arrangements (FWAs) may not just attract stay-at-home mothers to apply, but full-time working mothers as well, effectively increasing the pool of available talent for you as an employer to pick from.
