In the 20th century, we won the right to a two-day weekend and paid holidays. So, for the 21st century, let’s lift […]Read More
Life-appropriate career change?#works for me
Not everyone wants a nine-to-five job. We get it. It’s time to de-parent, de-gender and de-age the concept of a flexible career. The best young founders know experience brings wisdom & they need mentors from time to time. Businesses value the fact that working mums are – necessarily – incredibly organised. And dads have kids too.
At Afina Partners we understand you want a career to suit your life and style. We’ll help you find it.
Working out of the office?#works for me
‘Flexible working’ is so much more than working from home. It’s about working from wherever you need to be to keep in touch and operate effectively. By making the best use of today’s technology you can get on with your work – and your life – from wherever you are. It’s good for you and it’s good for business.
We know it, we do it, and so do our clients. We’ll find something that works for you, wherever you are.
Attracting the best talent?#works for me
The little things make all the difference in creating a loyal and satisfied team. Offer not only a great role, but a great place to work. Flexibility is seen as an attribute for top-level talent because it shows you trust people and value their wellbeing. And it can make the difference between someone deciding yes or no to your offer. You’re offering a long-standing benefit and a lifestyle choice.
We will help you find the best people for your business.
Four day week?#works for me
One of the biggest overheads for small and medium businesses is office space. Offering flexible working means you can both save money and let your employees decide how they use their time and space. The feeling of greater flexibility at work helps drives a positive company culture which is great internally, and for the external perception of your business. And it can make a major contribution to your bottom line.
Good for your people. Good for your business.
