Create more well paid part time jobs

The part time work opportunities are very poor. The salaries are well below full time salaries and often not enough to pay for childcare. 

The government could do more to support employers in creating well paid part time opportunities especially in the public sector. Maybe say a certain amount of higher paid jobs need to be part time or provide flexible working options? Or give short terms grants for the first 3 years? Even just promoting the idea of providing more part time opportunities would help.

 

 

Why the contribution is important

Parents are often forced to take part time jobs which they are able to do around childcare which are well below the salary they would normally earn. Whilst they take these positions they are losing out on building a future career.
