As a flexible recruiter in London, we’re working with lots of London businesses to provide part-time and flexible professionals to the capital’s employers. We help businesses who have a requirement for excellent employees who want something different to the usual 9-5/6/7/8pm daily grind.

As a part-time and flexible recruiter, we’ve been providing flexible professionals to organisations across the southeast and London for ten years. To celebrate this anniversary, we conducted a survey into flexible working practices to see what’s changed.

We asked over 250 businesses and over 1,000 employees for their views, with interesting results. Although there has been a shift towards flexible working, there is still work to do.

  • 91% of employers feel that attitudes are more positive than 10 years ago which is a great result but only 29% felt there had been ‘significant improvement’.
  • 83% of employers agree flexible working has benefited their business.
  • Benefits quoted by employers include greater retention of valuable staff, employee wellbeing and satisfaction and access to a broader talent pool.

You can read the full report here. It’s our view that like apprenticeships or maternity leave, flexible working needs become the ‘norm’ and not just a company ‘benefit’. If that happens, we’ll see a greater level of women staying in the work place and it could even help to close the gender pay gap.

Fantastic quality, exceptional experience

Ten2Two recruits solely for the flexible and part-time arena. While the research may be telling that more employers need to embrace flexibility, we believe that change is on the horizon. We’ve already seen many more flexible recruiters enter the marketplace, but unlike many of these, our recruitment agency acts as a professional headhunter for serious flexible employees.

Register today on our website if you’d like to find flexible work. Or if you’re an employer seeking a flexible recruiter, please contact Ten2Two London on 020 7082 8103.
