Depending on circumstance, you may want to look:
- When you are about to look for a role.
- During the recruitment process. Some employers accept expressions of interest in the role and then look to form job share pairs from the pool of applicants.
- When you are in post. Perhaps you want to reduce your hours/ your job share pair is moving on/ you're ready for promotion, but the increased hours are holding you back.
You may find you already know your perfect pair – they might be a colleague or friend of a friend.
If you are in post, your employer may already have a list of people who are interested in job-sharing, or want to reduce their hours.
If not, we have a growing community of candidates - across a range of industries, locations and seniorities - with whom you could match online, or at one of our speed networking events.

We'll use our unique online matching tool to identify a shortlist of potential matches for you, or to map a potential partnership if you already have a pair in mind.

When you've found your perfect pair, we'll create a joint CV setting out how your skills sit alongside one-aother. You'll use this when you apply for roles. We'll help you with applications and interviews.
When you're in post, we deliver a bespoke package of coaching sessions designed to set you up to to succeed, and ensure a successful outcome-focused partnership.
