2.2 Job share

If an employer is advertising a full-time post, it may be possible to apply to share the job with someone else. If you already know someone who would like to share the job with you, and who also meets the job requirements, you can apply together. However, if you don’t know anyone with the requisite skills and experience, there are specialist employment agencies that are able to help with finding job shares. These include:

  • Timewise Jobs [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] , a jobs board from Timewise, a specialist organisation that focuses on job shares.
  • Working Mums, which features a jobs board that includes some part-time STEM roles.
