An online platform that provides a job recruitment service and training programmes for remote workers in regional Australia has won a $20,000 federal award for rural business innovation.

Jo Palmer, founder of Pointer Remote Roles, started the company to help professional women in rural areas to find jobs that would allow them to work from a home office on family farms.

She has won the AgriFutures 2019 Rural Women’s Award, after being named as the New South Wales state finalist earlier this year. AgriFutures is the federal government’s main rural R&D funding agency.
