     Everything you need to persuade an employer that job-sharing is a no brainer.   You’ve decided you want to job share, you’ve mapped your skills, maybe you’ve even got your job share partner all lined up. And you start checking the jobs boards (including ours I hope). But – what if you just can’t see the right role for you? What if there are loads of full-time vacancies, but none open to job-sharing?   This situation is more common that we’d like. And we’re working away, raising the profile of job-sharing - but for now, it’s not a mainstream solution. So – what next?  Happily, it’s not not a disaster – far from it! In our experience, many, many employers are open to job-sharing, once they’ve explored the benefits and practicalities. And your job is to set them out for them.

  We've just bought the Four Pillar Plan, inspired by it's accessibilty and small, achieveable changes it recommends. And we thought you might be interested in reading about it.   Dr Rangan Chatterjee four pillars are relaxation, food, sleep and movement, and his recommendations are based on cutting edge research and his own experiences as a doctor. We've linked to the book below, but first you might want to dip into these articles which explore Dr Chatterjee's ideas a little more.   Practical and potentially life-changing, The Four Pillar Plan is an inspiring and easy-to-follow guide to better health and happiness.
