AMV launches permanent half-time job initiative

Advertising agency AMV BBDO is boosting its number of permanent half-time jobs for people who may have taken a career break to care for children or a sick family member.

AMV said its new initiative would go further than existing ‘returnships’ offered by other businesses providing only short-term experience to mainly female ‘returners’ after starting a family.

The firm adds it will initially identify top talent that may have taken a career break to raise a family or care for family. They will then be invited to apply for the new permanent roles requiring half the number of working hours of the agency’s standard contracts.

The successful applicants, who will be given access to a mentor from outside the agency to help them transition back into work, will also benefit from receiving the same kind of creative briefs, training opportunities and appraisals as full-time members. Remuneration for the roles will be pro-rata based on contractual hours.

The firm adds the roles will also offer full flexibility in terms of how an individual completes their work – the period of the working day they choose to work, and whether they work from home or in the office.
