Flexible working job vacancies

We often get asked for recommendations of recruitment consultants. Here is our list of UK based recruiters specialising in flexible working roles.  As more employers realise that both men and women seek and value opportunities for flexible working, the number of specialised recruiters grows.

Flexible working arrangements are many and varied, including:

  • part-time hours
  • compressed hours
  • working from home
  • hybrid – mix of working from home & employer’s location
  • term-time only
  • lack of specific working hours
  • fixed term
  • job-share.
