WorkJuggle was founded by Ciara Garvan in 2016 after spending one hour too many stuck on the M50 racing home to pick up her kids after work.
Surely, she thought, in this day and age there has to be a better way.
What she really wanted was work with some degree of flexibility; a three day week or a short term contract. Or even a full time role where she could work from home a couple of days a week. Anything that would allow her to do the interesting work she was qualified to do whilst raising a young family and not losing her mind from stress at the same time.
And so the seed of WorkJuggle was born. Initially she thought it might be a recruitment agency focused on flexible or part-time work. But then her love of all things tech came to the fore and she decided to build a platform and cut out recruitment agencies altogether. WorkJuggle is about putting candidates in the driving seats of their own careers. So essentially it is a marketplace putting companies and candidates together directly. All the companies listed here are roles which have some flexibility; be it either part -time, remote work or contract work or a mix of all 3. The companies post a project and are immediately matched with the candidates best suited to them. If the candidate likes the project/ company then they are a match. They interview either by skype or in the real world and ideally start working together soon after.
It has been a long road from idea to execution. Along the way WorkJuggle has gotten great support from Enterprise Ireland & the DCU Ryan Academy. Ciara has also had the good luck to meet Kim McKayed, our Technical Director who along with his team help make all the crazy ideas a reality. Joining the team are also Alison Power & Lisa O'Neill. Both Alison & Lisa have worked in senior HR roles and bring a huge amount of experience and fun to the team.
At the moment WorkJuggle is focused on jobs in tech companies. We hope you find what you are looking for whether it is a contract role or something more permanent. We are just on the start of our journey. We hope you will join us.
