New flexible job search site launched by government
16 September 2019
A new website has been launched which will use technology to gather in the region of 50,000 job adverts, all specifically designed with flexible working in mind.
Launched by the former Work and Pensions Secretary, Amber Rudd, the site advertises a huge range of jobs that are advertised as flexible; from head chefs, teachers and party planners to bookkeepers, cab drivers and web developers –opportunities aplenty.
Both full time and part time roles are on offer and contract types are categorised into permanent, temporary, contract and apprenticeship. They are also broken down into categories of job type and location in the UK and which roles are ‘disability confident’.
Amber Rudd said:
“The balancing act parents perform isn’t easy. For many, it’s when kids start school that mums – and dads – look to get their careers back on track.
Still wanting to put your kids first often means work comes second – it has to fit your life and work for your family. So finding good, flexible work is so important – which is why I’m making it easier.
I want parents to know that I’m backing them, by ensuring that when they want to work, opportunities are available that fit into the world of the breakfast rush, packed lunches and school run.”
