Part-time and flexible working is on the up, because it is an increasingly popular and rewarding way of working. Nearly 8 million people - over a quarter of the UK’s working population - now work part-time, and not just the usual suspects of parents with young kids. Employees of all ages, career stages and genders can be part time.

The Power Part-Time List names 50 of the country’s most senior and most impressive part time execs, recognising and celebrating this 21st Century shift in working patterns, and proving that part-time definitely doesn’t mean low-skilled.

More and more senior execs can and do work in flexible roles, and provide as much if not more value to their organisations and colleagues as full-time oppos. Last year’s list included the likes of Google’s Alison Lomax, CEO of the BP Pension Trustees Sally Bridgeland and FD of Cook Richard Steel.

Part-time is defined by the organisers Timewise as working 30 hours a week or fewer, so if you, your boss or anyone you know is an impressive senior part-timer, you’ve got one week left to nominate them for this year’s list. Just follow the link below:

The panel of esteemed judges includes MT’s very own deputy editor Andrew Saunders so you can be sure of the entries getting a decent hearing. Entries close on Mon 29th Sept What have you got to lose?
