We’re delighted to be a part of Hire Me My Way, an exciting new campaign to promote the benefits of part-time recruitment and flexible jobs.
At the moment, more than 1.5 million people (mainly mothers) are trapped in part-time jobs that are paid below their skill level, because not enough new jobs offer flexible working options.
The benefits of part-time and flexible work are clear: employers can match hours and salary to the requirements of a job and increase business effectiveness through better supporting company peaks and troughs. And a lot can be done in 20-25 hours a week by an experienced person. Plus flexible working can increase employee retention and satisfaction.
Please add your voice to the campaign by joining it here. Hire Me My Way is working with businesses, persuading them to open up jobs to flexible working options, from day one of a new hire. The more people who sign up to the campaign, the more employers will sit up and take notice!
Making flexible working the norm
Here at Ten2Two, we’re already working closely with businesses that recognise the benefits of flexible working. But more can still be done to promote this effective way of hiring staff so that part-time recruitment agencies like ours become less unusual – and ideally, all employers will consider flexible working options before advertising a position.
If you’d like to find a part-time or flexible position today, please register now to receive local job news. Or if you’re an employer looking for part-time recruitment to fill a skills gap or to cover a short busy period, we’d love to help. We look forward to hearing from you.
