Are you a power part-timer? Do you know one? nominate Someone for the 5th Annual Power Part Time 50 here
Thanks to mobile technology and the rise of the work-anywhere millennial generation, the days when you had to park yourself in an office for 60 hours a week to have a decent career are over.
In fact around 54% of the working population now work flexible hours, a victory on the face of it for a better work life blend.
However it’s not all such good news when it comes to those scaling the very top of the career ladder. If you’ve got your eyes on the boss’s job, the boardroom or a partnership, too often only full-time hours are equated with the necessary full-time commitment.
But it doesn’t have to be that way - as last year’s Timewise Power Part Time list proved, there are plenty of inspiring, high-flying and c-suite people who do manage to thrive in really big jobs, and so on less than the boring old cliché of a five day working week.
You just have to fnd them, and we did - from architects to entrepreneurs, creative directors to civil engineers, 50 brilliant examples of how part-time workers can not only equal their full-time colleagues levels of energy and effectiveness, but even surpass them – thanks to working smarter rather than harder and staying fresh for the fight.
We’re planning on doing the same again this time around, and the nominations for the Fifth Annual Power part Time list open today.
So if you’re a power part-timer, or if you work for one or know one (or know someone who does) then listen up. You can nominate anyone you like, from artist to entrepreneur, corporate big cheese to social enterprise champion, so long as they work less than a traditional five-day working week.
The final 50 (plus a new-for-this-time selection of 'Ones to Watch' will be chosen by MT and Timewise's distinguished panel of judges, including Belinda Earl, style director of M&S, Lynn Rattigan, COO of EY and Katie Bickerstaffe, CEO of Dixons at Dixons Carphone UK. The results will be published by MT in the New Year.
So go on - make a difference and nominate a power part-timer now.
