Forty-six percent of professionals say they’re interested in part-time jobs, according to FlexJobs, a jobs site that specializes in remote, part-time and contract work.
Specifically, the company says that remote, part-time jobs are growing in popularity. These jobs, which require a commitment of less than 40 hours a week and can be done from home, allow flexibility for workers who need to supplement their income or balance their career with other responsibilities.
“Working part-time can be a great solution for many people, such as working parents, caregivers, semi-retirees, career changers, and others who for whatever reason don’t find a full-time schedule appealing,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs, in a statement. “In fact, one of FlexJobs’ surveys found that more people reported being interested in a part-time schedule (46%) than being interested in freelance work (39%). The good news is that we have seen significant growth in the depth and variety of opportunities for professional remote, part-time jobs over the past few years.”
FlexJobs recently analyzed their database of job postings and determined which employers had offered the most remote, part-time jobs in the past six months.
