What is GajGal?
The world of work has fundamentally changed in the past few years and this change is continuing to expand into a new approach to employment.
- Employers are increasingly reluctant to hire full time employees with their resultant long term costs, training and skills development commitments.
- Employees have seen, through the recent recession, that loyalty and access to big company benefits are not guaranteed, even for experienced top performers.
In the “New World of Work”
- Companies want access to highly skilled staff with more flexibility to capitalize on individuals experience and skills for specific workloads without the increased burden of full time staff commitments.
- Individuals would love the flexibility and lifestyle benefits to work more on their own terms, but at the same time need access to Benefits such as Healthcare, Insurance, retirement savings and financial products that traditionally come with full time employment.
Many mothers with solid work experience have left their full time careers to start a family and would like to return to work, but on their own terms.

What we offer
GajGal is an expanding community of mothers helping mothers. Our motto “Get a Job | Get a Life” is based on the belief that for mothers wanting to get back into the workforce, finding a job with “the right level” of flexibility, empowers working mothers to live life on their own terms and better control their own destiny.
GajGal aims to address this “new reality” through four core components:
- 1. Job Search and Matching tools to streamline finding the perfect fit for flexible work arrangements.
- 2. Access to Benefits that in the traditional work environment have been provided by full time employers. GajGal helps to provide a critical mass of members to ensure access to a range of benefits options that we are continually working to expand and improve on.
- 3. Working Mother Community to provide access to news, blogs and articles of interest and importance to working mothers and a social networking community that working mothers can interact with and draw on for support.
- 4. The Entrepreneur Zone is for mothers aiming to start their own business and expand on the concepts of working mothers helping working mothers succeed.
