Jobsharing - Finding a match and making it work

Join Flexology for a fun evening with a focus on Job Sharing, we are delighted that Rachel Mostyn, Co-Head of Story Telling at Digital Mums will talk about her experience of job sharing in a senior role, she'll also cover how she manages to work from home and practical advice on making it work.

Research earlier this year reveals that businesses are finally getting more creative in designing jobs for the UK’s workforce – with more than 2 in 5 hirers stating they would consider hiring candidates for a senior role as part of a job share.

However with only 1 in 10 roles is advertised with flexibility, we'd like to support candidates to access 90% of the jobs out there, by promoting and supporting job sharing.

We want to break down the barriers and give you the skills and confidence to apply for roles where employers are not expecting and haven't asked for job sharing applications as well as those where they have. We'll be having a fun speed-dating style job match with this event focusing on matching candidates from HR and Marketing backgrounds with other suitably experienced or complimentary skilled candidates, in order to find a great job sharing match, to enable you to jointly apply for full time roles in the market.
