Part time work is a great option for those that have other commitments. This could be a hectic social life, family to care for or young children to look after.
Part time work allows for a lot more flexibility, as it doesn’t require you to be somewhere 9 till 5 every day of the week.
Many part time jobs are in fact quite flexible and allow those that embark on them to work in the hours that fit around their current existing schedules.
This is a great option for mums as they can work around the lives and schedules of their children. For example they can still be there to take the children to school and still be home in time to hear all about the events of the day! A 9 till 5 job would not allow for this as usually the employee would have to leave earlier than the children to beat the rush hour traffic and wouldn’t be home till after them, again due to the traffic or a maybe a meeting that ran on longer than it should have done.
Many part time jobs, however, may begin before office and school hours, meaning you are still there to take your children to school and still available to pick them up in the evening.
Part time work is also a great option for those who study. We all need a little extra income and those that study may need it even more in order to cover their course fees. Try to look for a part time job that benefits your studies and lies in the same field, as this will work well on your CV when it comes to the end of the education period and those involved wish to dive into a fulltime career.
