For our CEO, Sarah Agboola, the desire to support parents came from personal experience. When she was a teenager, Sarah's father passed away very suddenly. This left her mum tasked with taking care of a household, three children and full-time work all by herself, when what she really needed was someone to take care of her while she recovered from her own grief.
Fuelled by this experience, Sarah spent time conducting interviews and running product trials with people at all stages of the parenting journey. Along the way, they discovered that the Australian journal of social issues had actually defined working mothers of young children to be the some of the most time pressured members of society.
These insights shaped mtime as it stands today and led to the development and launch of our signature Moncierges in 2017. A Moncierge is a family assistant trained by mtime to help parents with at home support and childcare. Moncierges can help with anything from cooking, housekeeping, and babysitting, to tutoring or household errands — all from one dedicated, reliable carer personally matched to your family.
mtime is a for-purpose business and gives back to the Australian community not only by
families but by actively recruiting women new and returning to the workforce to join our Moncierge team.
