    This week our journalist Niamh Campbell talks with Mairead Moore, co-founder of recruitment company Whytematter, on a new wellbeing app that has been adapted for the COVID-19 crisis.

    Named KITE, it was originally developed as ‘KITE for Mums’ by Mairead’s long-term friend in New Zealand, Hannah Hardy Jones, who designed it as a wellbeing app for new mothers.

    Whytematter is supporting the roll out of it here in Ireland and the UK as part of the core KITE Business Team. 

    The app is now available for downloads on Android and Apple devices.

    It is £4.99 per person for a year’s subscription, and it is available for both individuals and businesses to purchase or give as a gift.

    Mairead also said that if anyone has any career concerns, she and Kirsty are happy to have a chat with anyone at no extra cost. Contact them via the Whytematter website here, or find out more info about Kite support here.

    The podcast is also available here on Spotify and on iTunes/Apple Podcasts when you search Sync NI, along with all previous episodes. Make sure to subscribe/follow for updates on new episodes also!
