According to a recent FlexJobs’ survey, more people reported being interested in a part-time schedule (47%) than being interested in freelance work (41%). Currently, about 17% of the U.S. workforce is engaged in part-time work. To help job seekers interested in finding career-level jobs with part-time hours, today FlexJobs released a list of the top 50 companies hiring for professional part-time jobs. This list is based on an analysis of over 51,000 companies and looks specifically at their part-time job posting histories in FlexJobs’ database during the first quarter of 2019 (January 1 through March 31).
Education, finance, and healthcare are the most well-represented industries featured on this list of companies with strong part-time hiring activity so far in 2019. The job opportunities at these companies include all career levels, both employee and freelance options, and options for hours varying from just a handful to 35 hours a week.
“Today there are a wide variety of part-time jobs available to people across education and career levels, and found within many different industries,” said Sara Sutton, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “To demonstrate this variety, current part-time job listings include medical director, tutor, administrative assistant, director of communications, editor, client relations specialist, and social worker. A part-time job can be an ideal work arrangement for workers wanting to continue their careers, explore new types of work, grow their professional networks, earn income, or pursue their passions, but are not able to commit to a full-time schedule,” Sutton concluded.
Many of these companies were also top employers for remote-friendly jobs, having been included in FlexJobs’ 2019 Top 100 Companies for Remote Jobs list.
