New Year, New Job (Share)?
As the new year dawns, a lot of people are considering if they’re in the right job.
We’re taking a fresh approach to recruitment in 2023 and advertising our next client & business development director role as an optional job share.
Our co-founders Nicky and George have operated a flexible job share arrangement since 2005 when they set up PRN. They wanted to find a way to build the agency & continue their career trajectories without compromising their families.
It’s worked brilliantly. Why?
There’s someone experienced there when you can’t be - because it’s your day off; because you’re on holiday; because you’re sick; because your child is sick.
Twice the energy, brain cells and ability to solve problems.
Someone to share the load - both in terms of tasks, and to handle a crisis.
Different perspectives bring more rounded ideas and solutions.
It simply makes working life more fun - with the right pairing!
With PRWeek reporting at the close of 2022 that 9/10 of PR people surveyed were suffering with poor mental health, it’s time to think about how to make working life better. We want PRN to drive change.
We know from building our associate network that many PR pros leave positions because they cannot deliver their responsibilities in a three or four day working week. Companies like Roleshare are doing amazing work to normalise job sharing, but it’s still not a popular way of resourcing a permanent position.
We’re putting our money where our mouths are. Please contact email@example.com for full details. You can apply as a pair - perhaps someone you worked with brilliantly in a previous role - or as an individual. We’ll then identify potential ‘sharers’.
Here's a snapshot of what we're looking for:
📣 10+ years experience in b2b and / or b2c
📣 Well-networked, preferably with a great international contact base
📣 Experienced in integrated comms, across broad sectors
📣 Happy to work in a 100% remote role (so also no mandated office hours, or commute…).
Our hiring decision will be based on suitability for the role and chemistry with fellow applicants. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and fit the criteria above, and we'll send you the job specification.
The team looks forward to meeting you!
