Our Story

RecruitMyMom was started in 2012 by Founder and CEO, Phillipa Geard, a passionate South African and entrepreneur. Phillipa, a mother of two, was motivated by the talents and abilities of many skilled mothers who were leaving the workplace due to inflexible work practices. She wanted to find a solution to stop the gender and skill leak by finding employers who could provide the environment and flexibility these women needed.

Today, the community consists of over 100 000 skilled Moms (and other career-flex workers) and thousands of progressive employers. Phillipa is supported by a team of professionals, all of whom work remotely from their home-based offices.
