It has been said that the merging of staff at Buckingham Palace is the first step towards bringing Prince Charles to the throne, and now the Prince has begun to ‘job-share’ with the Queen.
Prince Charles will accompany the Queen on the beaches of Normandy this summer to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, which is said to be ‘the most high-profile example yet of Charles sharing official duties with his mother on the world stage’. The job-share will aim to ease the transition through a ‘handover period’, ‘designed to be a “gentle glide”, as the Second World War generation of royals “passes the baton” to the next.’ Read the full article here.
Job-shares are becoming increasingly more popular in the workplace, especially for working parents. Typically, two employees will work part-time, together covering the work that would be done by one person working full-time. This is the perfect solution to create a more balanced work/family life, as it enables parents who wish to work to also spend days during the week at home.
