A new website specifically for part-time jobs has been launched. Named Part-Time.ie, it aims to
give employers a targeted, cost effective forum to advertise part-time positions and also to simplify the search for candidates who are looking for part-time employment.
Currently 450,000 people work part-time in Ireland. That’s equivalent to 1 in 5 . With latest CSO and IBEC reports suggesting we are close to full employment, it is predicted that employment growth will slow down as employers will be unable to fill roles. Part-time.ie gives employers access to a huge pool of talent across all sectors, including students and parents who are ready to step back into the workplace if a shorter working week is available.
