Jo Palmer is the Founder & Managing Director of Pointer Remote Roles – an online platform that facilitates remote work opportunities by connecting businesses all over Australia with talented professionals living in regional, rural and remote regions.

A successful business woman, wife, and mother to two daughters, Jo grew up in the Snowy Mountains, studied in Sydney and Wagga Wagga and then worked and travelled overseas before returning to Australia with her husband to the Riverina.

She is a connector and loves witnessing the amazing things that happen when people come together. It is this love of connection that was the driving force behind her establishing Pointer Remote Roles.

Jo is mobilising the network of highly qualified and experienced professionals who live in regional areas in Australia, who’s talent may otherwise be sitting idle or underutilised, particularly in women.

With today’s workforce moving towards flexible working hours and locations Jo believes that remote work is the key to future employment.
