Your goal when applying for roles is to give confidence in your partnership, and an insight into the benefits you bring them (how your skills and experience combine) so that they want to interview you, even if job-sharing isn’t part of their usual talent strategy. This is the moment to spend some time thinking about how your partnership will work, where your respective strengths lie, and what jointly you will bring to the job.

As we've said, when you're applying and interviewing as a job share pair, your goal is to demonstrate that you have a clear plan for how your job share will operate, and show that together you bring more to the role than any single employee is able, and to show how your skills and experience dovetail.
Build on any work you've already done, making it specific to the company and role for which you're applying. Make sure your CVs reflect your joint pitch, and practice interviewing too.
