A little about us

If you’re looking at this page, it probably means you are interested in working for The Parenting Place. Before you apply, we thought it would be helpful to tell you a bit more about us.

We’re a diverse workforce, with diverse ideas

Our people are our greatest asset. We want our employees to be successful, enjoy coming to work every day and inspired by who we are and what we do. We embrace a diversity of cultures and people. We are inclusive and encourage the richness of ideas and approaches that diversity brings. We encourage big thinking and give our people the support they need to make their mark.

A strong, supportive team environment

The Parenting Place is a close knit team that works well together as we strive towards our dream of a country where families are valued and young people feel great about their future. Positively impacting every family is important to us and this starts with a team who knows how to positively impact each other. It’s common to find everyone crowded around the communal table at lunchtime, sharing their plans for the weekend or goals for their job.

The Parenting Place is here to change the lives of young people and families. We employ people who share that dream. If this fits with your view of how work should be, please email Elize Beukes.
