Galway Chamber’s new member Part-time.ie, has recently moved to Portershed. Part-Time.ie was established in 2018 to provide an online platform for part-time jobs in all sectors across Ireland. Founder Jane Downes, who has herself worked part-time as a chartered accountant for the last 12 years, felt there was gap in the market and decided to create a cost effective platform to centralise part-time opportunities.
As we approach full employment, shortage of labour will be a huge threat to continued economic growth so employers in all sectors will have to consider all options to attract and retain staff, with one obvious option being flexibility either in terms of hours or location. Part-time.ie offers employers a very direct route to engage with a highly skilled, experienced talent pool.
To date the platform had great success placing candidates in various sectors and feedback from both employers and employees has been very positive. Ads cost just €50 and are live for 30 days. For further details see www.part-time.ie or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
