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.
A possible solution, for both employers and employees, is to consider the option of a job share. This is typically where a full-time remit is shared between employees who want to work part-time hours.
