Greens co-leader wants the Commons to be more accessible.
MPs should be allowed to job-share to open the role up to people from more diverse backgrounds, according to Greens co-leader
Congratulations to them both for their term job sharing leadership of the Party, and here's to making our workplaces, including those within politics, more flexible and inclusive for those with caring or parental responsibilities, as well as for disabled people like me.
A senior Tory has attacked parliament's "default no position" on a legal change that would allow MPs to job-share with another
A recent study by Robert Half UK, revealed that nearly a third of UK HR directors cite 'inability to balance personal and professional commitments' as the primary reason for employee burnout. Could the new UK government legislation offering flexible working rights for all help make a difference?
The growing culture of overwork is becoming increasingly endemic and is not just a problem in the UK, USA or Australia. In several western countries patterns of overwork are emerging in both public and private sectors.
Job-shares should be strongly supported by those who want to see more women elected to Westminster. And their value is not limited to women. Job-share is about enabling both women and men who currently feel unable to participate in politics but have a significant contribution to make.
Who votes on what, when, and why: what if one half of the job share turns out to be a rebel in disguise whilst the other is a party loyalist to the core?
