Job share - two halves make a whole lot more
  1. Claire Davies

    Claire Davies qualified from Bristol in 1983. Since then she has worked in general practice, both as a locum and fulltime assistant. She has a special interest in homoeopathy and has been working under a job share arrangement for four years.


AS the proportion of women in the veterinary profession increases, there is a need to provide flexible working conditions to try to ensure satisfaction for all parties concerned. Here, Claire Davies describes the job share arrangement that she and her practice have reached and considers both the advantages and disadvantages that a job share has brought.
