Australia job dating
We had such a great night and with such great feedback from those that attended we will be running more in the near future.
People who attended the event had all their questions answered and more on how job sharing works and what makes for a good job share partnership.
We’re looking forward to running similar events in other industries soon.
We believe job sharing can help solve the advertising industry’s gender imbalance and flexibility problems.
Innovative ways of working are emerging through new tech-enabled collaboration tools like Slack and the advertising industry simply isn’t keeping pace with such changes in how we live and work.
Part time positions simply do not exist in ad agencies, in part, due to increasingly tight deadlines; but by not providing the flexibility required to accommodate those who do more than just work, the industry will struggle to attract and retain not just women, but the best millennial talent, who’ll seek opportunities for creativity elsewhere.
They then had the opportunity to “speed date” potential job share partners.
The speed dating was a big success, bringing to life the Jobs Shared website.
Job sharing is a win-win solution for flexibility; especially in an industry where we all know two heads really are better than one.
