I recently returned to work after maternity leave and I am now job sharing; I work 3 days and my colleague works 2. After some brainstorming about whether to allocate specific tasks to ourselves and split the work, we agreed, as we were sharing the role and not performing two distinct and separate roles, to share the work and make accurate diary notes so that any of us can deal with any tasks on any day. Nice, simple, positive. Good communication will be required. How refreshing, though, to only have pleasant working relationships.
Definitely looking forward to the year ahead at work.
Oh yeah, and my boss buys the bacon rolls and makes cups of tea! RESULT!
