Explore the many benefits of job sharing for individuals, teams and for the Civil Service as a whole.
How can I make job sharing a success?
Job sharing can be very rewarding but requires flexibility, trust and good teamwork. Current job sharers give great advice on what has worked for them.
How are job sharing roles advertised?
Job share roles are advertised, sifted, and interviewed for in a similar way to other jobs but there are some key differences.
We have been job-sharing together for 12 years and were incredibly proud to be the first Director General-level job-share in the Civil Service. We believe, and hope we have shown, that nearly any role can be done as a job-share.
How does job sharing differ from part-time work?
Part -time jobs can be accomplished fully within the working hours, by just one person. Job sharing is two people working collaboratively to fulfill the aims and objectives of one full-time role.
