I wanted to sustain my career growth, but also wanted to be an A-player parent. Sharing a role felt like the perfect solution, but I didn’t know where to find a partner. And so, we decided to launch Roleshare.’’

The key dynamic of a job share is that you want to do a great job not just for you and the organization and its customers, but for your job share partner as well. So it sets a high bar. We’ve delivered huge projects and run multiple teams as a job share, and the feedback has been positive.Will & Sam Co-Directors Sustainability, Aviva
With freelance you're never fully in the fold. You’ve got to really dig to get information you need to be successful. Being able to share the workload and have access to all the info and benefits of a full-time job is interesting.Rachel, Digital Marketing Freelancer

I'm starting my MBA and looking for something part-time that keeps me interested, with a good income, to handle the two commitments.Mohamed, Finance Manager, Tech
We have found job share to be a huge advantage in that we are able to have considered issues from a variety of lens before coming to an agreed way forward. As a result, we have found we are bolder and quicker in our decision making.Lucy & Debra, Co-HR Directors, JLL
Roleshare is a way to get the best out of people and keep them in the workforce. I'm not in the workforce, currently. I don't know for how long. I can’t just go back to anything, and roleshare feels right.Caroline, Head of Product Management
We are upbeat because we’re getting that work-life balance. I feel very grateful for this opportunity. I want to give it my best and I feel so passionate about the organization.Sherelle, Co-Head of Internal Communication, Open Banking
Two people coming together can come up with even better ideas and service for their clients because two heads are better than one – and that can really happen in shared roles.Alison, Head of HR, Allen & Overy
I still think that when I shared my job is the job that I performed best in my life.Ellie Detective, London Metropolitan Police
Two people share the responsibilities, benefits, pay of a full-time job. They alternate working days or weeks, have a proper handover, share tools and communications channels, and keep productivity going full time.
So many. For employees, it provides a sustainable, reliable path to career growth with flexibility with equitable access to benefits and information to be successful within the company. They also enjoy a unique opportunity to peer-to-peer learn. For companies and managers, they benefit from the unique social contract and 1:1 accountability of rolesharers. Also, according to UK research, companies benefit from 11% higher level of wellbeing among employees who roleshare and a 30% productivity gain. Plus, job sharing offers businesses greater diversity, more continuity, better quality output, fuller skillsets in a role, etc. See more benefits.
It should not. When people share jobs they are measured together, this is key as it creates unique 1:1 accountability, which in turn means managers can be more hands off day to day. Managers also gain by retaining direct reports at risk of leaving or attracting untapped talent who together bring greater continuity and more experience on their team. See tips for managers considering roleshare and suggestions on how to manage job sharers.
Good motivation and opportunity to grow and improve then, no? It all starts with the right match and a solid plan. That’s where Roleshare comes in. According to research we conducted when people share jobs they perform at their individual best - there is also a 30% productivity gain. The extra care around communication, tracking, and handover, drives more accountability. Additionally, our research suggests there is a natural coaching and upskilling benefit built into job share. More real-time feedback within the pair drives regular opportunities to grow and improve. And if one person leaves - you still have continuity in the role and a built-in recruiter in the other person who can help find a partner using Roleshare. Learn more.
