Greater Manchester’s Flexible Jobs Index Report

Greater Manchester’s Flexible Jobs Index has been published in conjunction with flexible working experts Timewise.

The report, commissioned by GMCA, examines the proportion of jobs in the city-region that are offered with flexible working at the point of hire with an analysis of more than 175,000 online job vacancies posted in Greater Manchester.

While the portion of jobs in Greater Manchester open to flexible working has more than doubled in four years, thanks to initiatives like the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter (external website), it is clear that more needs to be done to drive up flexible working opportunities. 

The offer of flexibility in the form of working from home, part time working, and flexible shifts can help to attract a much wider pool of talent for jobs.  This new report by flexible working experts Timewise provides insight into the extent to which this is already happening in practice.
