Brian Stanislas, Co-Chair, Cross Government Flexible Working Network
Brian is the Product Manager of the Civil Service job share finder site and a passionate and enthusiastic champion of flexible working to groups internal and external to the Civil Service. Following the launch of the site on International Women’s day 2015, Brian has actively sought out Diversity Network Leads and contacts to promote job sharing. The rationale resulted from his analysis of the MI gained from the job share finder highlighting the opportunity for promotion of the site beyond just a gender focus, for example promoting the site among people with disabilities and people of pensionable age. Brian has worked with the Disability Inclusion Team and male jobshare partners in HMRC and DWP who are working in this type of arrangement. Brian has continued to take an active role in promoting and presenting at job share events in Departments (e.g. National Inclusion Week events at Home Office, DWP and MoJ) where the focus is primarily gender orientated. Brian has enthusiastically embraced promoting job sharing using a range of digital media including GOV.UK, mobile friendly newsletters, CSHR News and LinkedIn.
