jobseeker resources

Australia’s first family friendly employment experts

School Hours is Australia’s first and only family friendly job board with every job advertised to have an element of flexibility to better suit parent jobseekers looking for work.

Watch our new video for an overview or read on below for a little more detail.

What is a family friendly employment opportunity?

“Family friendly employment” can be used to describe any opportunity that a family sees as being flexible enough to assist them with the task of raising their children well while balancing a career.  All of the following would be considered family friendly employment:

  • flex-time, compressed hours, annualised hours or term-time
  • part-time, casual, seasonal or temporary
  • fly-in-fly-out, job-sharing or telecommuting

If a vacancy falls into or could fall into any of these categories, then it would be considered a family friendly employment opportunity and we’d love to advertise it on our website.

What are the benefits to parents?

  • Flexibility is Guaranteed – Every job advertised is guaranteed to have an element of flexibility.
  • It’s simpler – Find professional, enjoyable and rewarding careers quickly and easily.
  • It’s for both parents – Dads want flexibility as much as mums do and so we’re catering for you both.
