Part-time work at senior levels
Part-time jobs on offer seem to be primarily in teaching, nursing/medical and administration roles. In recent years financial roles have become more flexible as well. Salaries seem pre-dominantly under GBP 30,000 a year.
On the whole we were rather disappointed by the level and number of jobs on offer. We would love to know if we have missed a valuable resource that is of use to professionals, senior women and women leaders.
However, do not lose hope and confidence, part-time jobs are out there, in many sectors and at all levels. Check-out these: case-studies of women who found top part-time jobs from Women Like Us, recruitment agency for flexible work. They show women can get back after a long career-break, or find a job share or flexible position at a senior level.
