02 JULY 2019

Date: 2nd July 2019: Today marks the launch of a petition formed by an alliance of flexible working champions in the UK. Fatherhood Institute, Fawcett Society, Mother Pukka and Pregnant Then Screwed have joined forces to campaign for all roles to be advertised as flexible from day one of employment.

The petition, directed to Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, calls for legislative change in how all jobs are advertised. It asks the Government to change the law so that when recruiting to a role, an employer will be legally obliged to consider how the position can be done flexibly and to publish the flexible working options available when advertising the position. Successful candidates will have a legal right to take up the flexible working option that was advertised.  This will give people the information they need to decide if the job suits their work life balance and will help employers attract a wider range of quality candidates.

The Flex for All campaign is encouraging anyone who believes in flexible working to sign and share the petition, which can be found here.
