Our useful guides to job-sharing. SMTJ are speaking to the broadcasters to ask them to be more receptive to job sharing and flexible working once production begins to pick up. By embracing job sharing and recommending the set-up to employers more freelancers have access to work and an income during 2020. Many freelancers will feel the weight of extra caring commitments throughout this year and many find it impossible to return to work full time until some equilibrium happens and job sharing is a way to allow people to have access to the jobs they desperately need.
