Part Time Jobs

Part-time jobs provide employment opportunities where a role might not demand a full-time employee, where the amount of work is variable, or where candidates want a degree of flexibility from their employment.

A typical part-time vacancy offers fewer hours per week – so whereas full-time employment is usually around 35-40 hours per week, part-time roles might offer 16-20 hours per week, although some roles might involve flexible or variable working hours as appropriate.

While the contact time between employer and employee might be less, it is still important to place the right candidates into part-time jobs to make sure everybody gets maximum value for money out of those hours, and at Alexander Hancock we work to deliver the same quality on these vacancies as we do for full-time roles.

Types of Part-Time Vacancies

All kinds of jobs can be offered as part-time vacancies, whether on flexible hours, to account for a variable work load, or as part of a job share arrangement, along with many, many other reasons why a full-time vacancy might not be suitable.

Alexander Hancock recruit for part-time roles in all industries and sectors, commonly including:

  • Accounts
  • Customer Service
  • Health Service
  • Marketing
  • Telesales

We recognise that candidates have a broad range of reasons to prefer part-time job opportunities, whether you have family commitments, an unusually difficult commute, or you just want a more flexible work-life balance.

Part-time careers can be every bit as fulfilling and long-term as full-time jobs, while for some candidates they offer a good way to ease back into work after a sabbatical, or to take on a role that allows you to expand on your existing transferable skills.

How Part-Time Roles Work

The defining aspect of part-time jobs is the number of hours per week – and not the overall duration of the employment, which can continue indefinitely in a permanent part-time job, or might instead be offered on a temporary, fixed-term or contract basis.

Part-time roles may be advertised based on an hourly rate of pay, or a pro rata amount based on the salary that would be paid for the equivalent full-time role.

As with all of the employment opportunities we recruit for, Alexander Hancock work to place the best candidates into each vacancy at competitive rates, for the mutual benefit of both the employer and the employee, no matter what the terms of the vacancy may be.

I must admit that before I came along to your agency, and for quite a while, I had begun to feel quite crestfallen because I hadn’t received quality feedback from the other agencies I was registered with and began questioning my own ability-but you changed all that and since our meeting I feel that my self confidence and optimism has returned ten fold and you restored my faith and positivity-and I thank you for that so much.
