What are the benefits of sharing a role / job share?

Loads for employees and employers!

Bucket loads. 

Employees get a fulfilling career and role while having extra time back in a week. They also get a buddy that is committed to the success of the role - holding each other accountable, learning from each other, strategizing together, and encouraging each other. 

Employers get twice the smarts, when typically they settle for one set of skills for a role. They also get more than typical full-time coverage on the role - when one partner is away on leave, the other can keep things progressing. They also retain employees and attract new talent. See our Roleshare Guide section for the 8 Benefits of Shared Roles. And see the general benefits of flexible working from the UK Department for Business Innovation & Skills.
