Increasingly, more and more people are seeking a greater level of flexibility and a better work/life balance in their jobs. In the quest for these coveted work benefits, many people are shunning traditional 9-to-5 roles in favor of part-time opportunities. Sometimes, employees may be disappointed to find that a part-time role doesn’t carry with it the same level of strategic responsibility or challenges as their full-time work, which can be frustrating in some instances.

This is typically where a full-time remit is shared between employees who want to work part-time hours. Let’s chat about the job-sharing model and how The Job Pairing platform helps by creating job pairs through a matching process and preparing them for employment.

Chat Takeaways:

  • How to evaluate if job sharing is possible for your position, and if it's a good fit for you personally
  • How to introduce & apply the idea to your workplace
  • Tips to prepare for & avoid the more common mistakes made when job sharing
