Job Share Workshops and Coaching

Three things that will impact the success of job sharing is finding the right person to share with, making sure job sharing is the right solution for you and having the support of your employer.

job-share-workshopsWe are strong supporters of creating a diverse and inclusive workforce. With the increasing numbers of people wanting to transition to retirement, parents wanting to continue their career not just find a part-time job, and people of all life stages demanding flexibility for a range of reasons, the need for flexible options that still provide full time coverage for the employer is essential.

We hear all too often stories of people working well below their pay grade just so they can have the flexibility they need or being paid part-time but effectively working full time to manage the workload.

Our business focuses on job sharing because we believe it’s one of the best solutions for professionals who require flexibility. With our help, we can help both employers and individuals get the most out of job sharing.


Individuals and teams looking for work

It’s essential to find the right partner, as the success of your job share arrangement will depend on finding the right fit. We make it easier for you to find someone with our Job Share network, which allows you to search people in your industry also looking to job share. Once you’ve found your partner it’s time to sell yourself as a team, and we can help you with that.

In a one-on-one (or one-on-two) session we will help you write a job share proposal that employers can’t say no to. As part of your training, you will receive a complimentary copy of our Job Share Proposal Toolkit which we will work through with you.

At the end of the session, you will know how to respond to pushbacks, how to sell your strengths, and have a well-written business case to present to your potential employer.

The session can either be conducted by phone, Skype or in person (if you’re in Brisbane), whatever you’re most comfortable with.

These sessions are personalised to you and your industry.

Individuals and teams already employed

If you’re already working in a job share role, or you’re about to start in a new job share arrangement why not ask your employer about job share coaching?

We can help you understand job sharing best practices to avoid the communication problems many job share teams face. We’ll provide you with tips on how to make job sharing more successful for you, your team and your boss. Job ShareTeam coaching involves a one-on-one or one-on-two session to help set you up for a successful career job sharing.

Training can either be done in person at your workplace, via phone or Skype, whichever you’re more comfortable with.

After your training, you’ll know how to set up norms in the workplace, use technology to help simplify communications with your partner, communicate effectively and ensure your job has been designed for job sharing.

I recently heard Simone from Jobs Shared speak at a professional workshop I attended and I was blown away!  Not only did I discover that there was help available for potential job sharers and their employers, but Simone also provided really practical insights and strategies for getting the best out of job sharing arrangements. I left the session feeling like job sharing could be a very viable solution in my workplace.

Managers and HR

Often job share arrangements are made without consideration of the managers who will be managing the teams.

We help take the unknown out of managing job sharers by providing personal coaching sessions for managers who will have job share teams reporting to them and for Human Resources professionals not familiar with job sharing or want to know more about best practice and setting up job share agreements.

Managers are often faced with questions such as: Who do I or others contact when we have questions, who’s working when, who will be in charge, who is responsible for what, and what do I tell the rest of the team?

We will take all of the unknowns out of job sharing for you, and coach you until you’re comfortable with the new set up. In no time you’ll become your companies biggest advocate for job sharing.
