Flexible Working

Only 6.2% of jobs advertised in the UK mention flexible working options, according to a national study by flexibility experts Timewise. These findings coincide with a separate report from the recruiters Manpower Group, which warns of a ‘critical shortfall’ of qualified workers.

Timewise analysed 3.5 million UK-based job vacancies and found only a small per cent of quality jobs offer salaries of £20,000 a year or more and some degree of flexibility.

With 14.1 million people in the UK believed to want or need flexible work, Timewise is urging employers to mention flexibility in job advertisements, to attract a more diverse range of candidates.
