Annika is one of the top-rated mothers on Airtasker, who describes herself as a ‘Jill’ of all trades and has received 5 stars for every reviewed task so far!
“After receiving my commerce degree, I worked in various professional roles. Starting as a human resource manager and rising up the ranks. I’ve spent time on various learning and development teams in one of Australia’s top law firms and only a few years ago, I was working as a national payroll manager to over 3000 staff.”
With the birth of her daughter, Annika’s career as a HR professional was put on pause, as she chose to exit the workforce and become a full-time mum.
“I wanted to be there for the first years of my daughter’s life, but I had to balance this with my desire to continue working. Using Airtasker I could still earn an income during this period by working casually online or locally.”
Even with her daughter entering daycare, Annika still uses Airtasker to find work that lets her balance her parental responsibilities and income needs.
