Why is part-time attractive in HR?
As recruiters, we're forever being asked about the part-time market in the HR profession. Given the demographic of the HR industry, this is hardly surprising.
A vast percentage of the HR profession aged between 25 and 45 look to work in a part-time capacity. Working part-time can give HR professionals the flexibility to explore other options available to them, such as independent HR consulting, while offering a degree of financial stability as the individual develops their niche, market and network or they look to return to work from maternity leave on a part time basis, for example.
