At Dudley Council we recognise prospective and existing employees sometimes require flexible working arrangements, and so we offer the following options to our employees:
- Occasional working at home – some jobs can occasionally be done at home, employees can request to work at home up to four days per month
- Flexi-time – some council jobs operate a flexi-time system giving flexible times for commencing and ending work, and the opportunity to claim up to two working days off for hours clocked. Annual Leave entitlement exceeding statutory standards
- Job share – please see below for further details
Job sharing is when two or more people share the duties and responsibilities of one full-time job. Each person undertakes part of the work for part of a week or alternate weeks. Salary/wages and other benefits are then divided in proportion to the hours worked.
All jobs are open to applicants on a job share basis unless otherwise stated. Job share may be unsuitable due to business reasons to justify that the post must be filled full time.
Applications from job share candidates will be treated equally to those candidates wishing to work full time.
If you would like to apply for a post in a job share capacity and the job has been advertised as open to job share, you should indicate that you would like to be considered for job share on the application form. You do not need to have an identified partner before applying to job share. If you have identified a partner, this should be clearly indicated on the application form.
