An excellent new resource for people looking for alternatives to the traditional concepts of work and careers.
The Hire Me My Way campaign is led by Timewise, a multi-award winning social business. Their founding vision is that ‘everyone should be able to find the flexibility they need in their job, without losing their value in the workplace.’
Led by founders Karen Mattison MBE and Emma Stewart MBE, Timewise is working to build a healthy flexible jobs market by:
- Running Timewise Jobs, a website for part-time jobs and roles offering flexibility.
- Partnering with employers to promote the business benefits of opening up more jobs to flexibility at the point of hire.
- Initiating research, innovation projects and media campaigns such as the Power Part Time List, to help press the case for greater flexibility at work.
The Hire Me My Way campaign is their latest venture and they hope it will have a far-reaching effect, and transform the flexible jobs market.
The Big Lottery Fund supports the Hire Me My Way campaign to achieve the positive social impact that comes from part-time and flexible jobs being readily available. Having flexible working available at the point of hire helps parents and carers, people with disabilities, older workers, people with health issues, and many other groups.
* Only 8.7% of jobs paid £20,000 or more (full time equivalent) are advertised with part-time or flexible options.
