Below is a list of flexible working recruiters – recruitment organisations focusing on hiring for roles with flexible working arrangements.

We often get asked for such a list – and here it is!  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
  • term-time only
  • lack of specific working hours
  • fixed term
  • job-share.

Career-Mums’ sister company, CM Talent, works with employers to help them attract, retain and develop gender-diverse teams to close the UK’s gender pay gap.  This includes supporting employers to embrace flexible working through adopting a smart working ethos, devising and supporting returner initiatives and maternity and paternity coaching.
