Finding part-time work

Posted on April 16, 2018 at 11:45 am

If you are in the process of looking for a job then you may need to make sure it fits around other commitments you may have such as childcare. Part-time work can vary greatly. It may be that the working hours are for full days but only a few days a week or you may be required to work shorter days throughout the whole week or the majority of it. Depending on what the job is, you may be able to choose the hours you work to allow you to fit it in around your other commitments.

If you find a full-time vacancy that you feel would be perfect for you then you could always apply and ask them whether they would consider offering a part-time role. Some companies may accept this especially if it’s only on a short-term basis or they may even consider hiring two part-time people to cover the role.

It is important to remember that when you are part-time you will only be entitled to holiday pay that has been accrued based on the time you have worked. You may also need to work a longer probationary period.

If you are currently in a part-time role but feel that you want to take on more work, before leaving and looking for a full-time position, speak to your current employer and ask them if they would consider taking you on full time.
