It seems a bit like token-diversity to me. They're going to make squillions from hiring a part-time, short term female think tank (probably on "pocket money" wages).

This thread is what I need today so I don't feel so alone. We had DS1 in tears at breakfast because no one could come to his first school sports.

In fact, the real pay rises in such places seem to be offered around the time most people decide to have kids, meaning you put in the hard years and then have to choose. That what I think sucks about this industry.
I personally think if all parties are motivated and willing to be flexible when needed, most jobs can work as a job share.

Haven't read the thread but my experience... I have had 3 children whilst working in the same position in health and my line manager and team have been nothing but accommodating. During the past 6 years of having had my babies I was able to return to work with reduced hours as I requested, I was able to also work from home for a period of time, I was also able to choose my hours being school hours.
My workplace have been awesome.
I have also gone to all my childrens sports events, haven't missed anything.

Is your career really ruined when you have a baby?
I agree the job can be done part time. I did it part time for a very long time. But the quality of the work did die off after I returned from my second maternity leave as I became more I invisible as a part time working mum.

Personally I've seen a bit of difference between the two. Many women seem to have a "job" to come back to that they can do part time, but the whole "career" part seems to get cut off for them.

I'm happy to plod and be remunerated to do so, as I value flexibility and low stress more important than earning big bucks and advancing in my chosen field.
