Recruiters have seen a significant rise in demand for jobs offering flexibility, part-time roles and those where no experience is required, according to a report.
Jobs site Indeed said searches for part-time work increased by 65% in recent months compared with a year ago, especially for warehouse and retail roles.
An increase in searches for jobs where no experience is necessary shows that people are either looking for second jobs or need to find another job after being made redundant, said Indeed.
Searches for weekend only, night shifts and jobs on zero hours contracts also increased, the study showed.
Jack Kennedy, of Indeed, said: “The growth in searches for part-time and flexible roles and work where no experience is required shows people are increasingly seeking jobs that enable them to bend around their personal lives, and likely their current work lives too.
“With work being sought for less-favourable time frames – such as weekends and night shifts – and zero hour contracts, it likely demonstrates individuals seeking a second or third job or juggling new work alongside caring responsibilities to pay the ever rising bills.”
