Welcome back!

When you were a child, your parents probably taught you to share your toys and sweets. But did you know that it's even possible to share your job?

Today's Lesson
JOB-SHARE   ジョブ・シェアリング


  • To job-share is for two or more people to divide the hours and pay of one job among themselves; for example, two part-time workers may share one full-time job.
  • job-share は、ひとつの仕事について、勤務時間および賃金を2人またはそれ以上の人の間で分け合う、という意味です。例えば、2人のパートタイム労働者が、1人分のフルタイムの仕事を分担するということです。


  1. After the baby was born, my husband and I decided to job-share at work so that we could take turns staying home with the baby.
  2. We can't afford to keep you on the payroll full-time, but we also don't want to have to let you go. How would you feel about job-sharing with Lisa in the accounting department?
  3. (HR manager to new employee)
    It might also be possible to set up a job-share arrangement in the future if you ever wanted to reduce your hours. We're very flexible.
  4. My job-share partner is leaving the company soon, so they've offered to let me take over the position full-time.
  5. I'm looking for a part-time or job-share position in radio broadcasting.
