[Resource] "Women like us" aka @WomenLikeUsHQ – part time jobs for women in London

Regular readers might know that I’ve been pondering the concept of part-time jobs and finding out more about what the ‘culture’ is with employers. What do they think about two people applying for a ‘normal’ full-time job but doing it as a job-share? I haven’t really investigated it in much depth yet so don’t have any answers but in the meantime my friend highlighted this London-based website as she’s spotted a couple of charity science communicator / information type jobs there.

It’s slightly different from what I was looking at in that it provides a jobs board for jobs that are unambiguously part-time – also plenty of jobs aren’t related to the science communication field, but it’s a useful resource 🙂

According to this interview in The Guardian they’re looking at expanding to men as well as women, and older people too http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/jun/25/life-after-children-part-time-work

Here’s the blog post I wrote earlier outlining some thoughts about turning full time jobs into two part-time jobs, which I shared with people on the psci-com list. I speak as someone who has two entirely separate part-time jobs that make up one full time role, which is perhaps cheating 😉
