Jobsharing is a common form of flexible working that employers offer. A job share is an arrangement whereby two or more part-time workers share the duties of a single job.
The responsibilities and duties of the job are split, and the hours, pay and benefits of the full-time job are divided in proportion to the hours that each job-sharer works.Job-sharers are, in effect, part-time workers.
