RecruitAGraduate is the latest recruitment solution from Phillipa Geard, founder and CEO of RecruitMyMom which was founded in 2012. Phillipa, a mother of two, was inspired by the talents and abilities of many skilled mothers who are a great asset in business provided they are given the environment and flexibility they require. Rather than lose these skills, RecruitMyMom seeks to find a solution to retaining these skills for forward-thinking companies.
Today the community consists of over 55 000 skilled moms (and other career-flex workers) seeking meaningful employment opportunities together with thousands of forward-thinking employers.
Phillipa was moved by a speech made by President Cyril Ramaphosa raising awareness of the unemployment crisis in the country and plight of the youth in South Africa for access to career opportunities. As a business owner she wanted to make a difference by employing bright young interns but had no idea where to recruit them. The idea of creating an easy to use platform, RecruitAGraduate was born to bring these skills closer to the employer looking to hire tertiary education graduates and interns.
RecruitMyMom was listed as one of the 25 most successful business ideas in South Africa by Entrepreneur Magazine.
Phillipa is backed by a team of professionals who assist her driving the success of RecruitMyMom and the now RecruitAGraduate.
