Job Share

Job sharing occurs when a full-time post is divided between two employees, with each sharing the duties and receiving proportionate pay and conditions of service.  Each employee receives a separate contract of employment. It involves a high level of co-operation and communication between the members of staff involved.

We endorse the principle of job sharing as it recognises that the option of job sharing opens up a range of career opportunities to those who, out of choice or necessity, cannot work full-time. Job sharing also represents a flexible and innovative response to the management of human resources.
