In partnership with Gemini3, the NSW Government has launched a job share platform pilot to enable more employees to work flexibly

On 13 March 2019, the NSW Public Service Commission, in partnership with Gemini3, formally launched its new job share matching platform for current employees with seven pilot agencies:

  • Better Regulation Division (BRD) of Finance
  • Department of Industry
  • Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC)
  • Family & Community Services (FACS)
  • Public Service Commission (PSC)
  • Roads and Maritime Services (RMS)
  • Service NSW (SNSW).

The platform will enhance job sharing awareness and opportunities by making it easier for people to find potential job share partners, as well as exploring job share and whether it might be right for them. The platform will also host a range of toolkits, case studies and videos for employees, HR staff, managers and agency leaders.

“The new job share platform unlocks access to quality part-time work, and when designed properly, almost any full-time role can be shared. Better still, your days off become real days off because you can relax knowing someone else has it under control” Emma Hogan, NSW Public Service Commissioner.

Research shows that flexible working has a positive impact on employee health, productivity and retention. Job sharing is an equitable and smart solution for both employees and employers. It creates a larger talent pool, maintains skills and knowledge, and creates career opportunities. Job sharing can be undertaken in different ways, so it can be tailored to suit both organisational and employee needs.

Gemini3 is proud to work with the NSW Public Service Commission to pursue the NSW Government’s goal of leading the flexible workplaces of the future.
