Childcare Matters

Because the kids are worth it (most of the time)

"Childcare is becoming a strategic advantage for employers.”

– Harvard Business Review

Minding & Mentoring

As part of the öogo Club package we are pairing up families with students who seek mentoring for their careers from one of the parents.

We source local students who are flexible and can partner up with a family and, as part of the agreement, the relevant parent agrees to ‘Mentor’ the student, which can include help with CV’s, introductions and networking, insight into the industry, tasks and assignments from the workplace, referrals etc.

We have partnered with COVID Interns to deliver solutions across the US, UK and Ireland and are expanding our reach all the time.
