Hi all, I am due to return to work next Spring once my maternity leave ends and I would like to go back on a part time basis. I'm hoping for a 0.6/3 full days contract but i'm unsure how to word my request. Our Head is normally very good at allowing for part time and there are already a few members in our department currently working this through a job share. Also, another member of our team is on maternity leave and due to return not long after me and she is also interested in going part time, possibly doing a job share with me but doesn't want to ask for it yet. I'm not aware if she has let anyone at work know this so I'm not sure whether or not to include this as a viable option to be considered so I do not know if to ask for part time or a job share. It sounds silly but the whole thought of asking has made me anxious because I keep thinking it maybe rejected due to a lot of changes happening at the school. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you for reading.
