Flexible and part-time work

The changes that many businesses have made during the pandemic means there have never been more opportunities for flexible and part-time work.

Types of jobs

There are different ways of working flexibly. From Job sharing, where people do one job and split the hours to part-time roles when you work fewer hours or fewer days. It might be possible to do some or all of your work from home or to do full-time hours but over fewer days. Older job seekers might even consider a phased retirement – where you can reduce hours and work part time, choosing when you want to retire altogether.
