Endless options for flexible work arrangements at Metcash
Faced with the ambition to keep their substantial role whilst juggling a family, Nicole Linton & Kym Korbel, both Metcash employees didn’t want to compromise on job satisfaction. Instead, they entered a job-share arrangement where they shared one full-time role.
They each work 3 days per week and alternate their days so that the full-time role they share still gets delivered whilst they are away from the office.
Nicole and Kim explain in-depth all the benefits they and their team get from this arrangement in a podcast episode you can listen to here.

“At Metcash it’s just very flexible. As long as we are getting what we need to get done, done, that is all that is important.
Flexibility is at the heart of everything Metcash does, so bring your best self, and they will make sure you have the support you need to thrive.
