Did you miss the second Civil Service Jobshare Network event?

Jobshare slide deck

Having successfully hosted their first networking event earlier in the summer, the Jobshare Network pulled out all the stops for their follow-up event last week (26 November).

Guest speakers included an intro video from Sir Jeremy Heywood, and Q&As with Deborah Bronnert, the new Chief Operating Officer at the FCO, Richard Heaton, William Hague (Chief People Officer at HMRC rather than the other one), Sarah Healey (DCMS), Jenny Dibden (BIS) and Sarah Hill from the jobshare company, Capability Jane.

See the storify below for all the social media reaction to the speakers discussions and examples of jobsharing in the Civil Service. As William Hague pointed out, with few exceptions there's no reason why all jobs in the service can't be jobshares...



The second Civil Service Jobshare Network event took place with a strong panel of guest speakers and a chance for members to road test the new online jobshare tool. Here's the view from social media...

    Hi Nick

    The new "Civil Service Job Share Finder" website alpha/trial phase will be ready this week so if you want to help us trial it email me at and the new website will be launched in early 2015 (date TBC). We know there's a lot of interest which is great. It will be a way of finding a jobshare partner rather than a job which will still be on the civil service jobs website where they are open to jobshares or sometimes advertise one half of a jobshare
    thanks Verity

    The event sounded great and it seems to strike a very positive note. I've heard about a proposed Civil Service job share register or noticeboard to help people find job sharing opportunities etc. Was this covered at the event and is there any further news about it?
