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 straightforward 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 curated platform. WorkJuggle is about putting candidates in the driving seats of their own careers. All the roles on the platform have some flexibility; be it either part -time, remote work or contract work or even a mix of all 3. Increasingly we are also working with companies who offer family-friendly work. This is a great initiative aimed at keeping working parents in the workforce. These roles are permanent but allow for flexibility.
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 & Helen Cahill. Alison, Lisa & Helen have all worked in senior HR roles and bring a huge amount of experience and fun to the team.
At the moment WorkJuggle is focused on IT, Finance, HR, Management, Marketing, and Sales roles. We hope you find what you are looking for whether it is a contract position or something more permanent. We are just on the start of our journey. We hope you will join us.
