Flexible work practices
Supervisor: Clare Kelliher BSc MA PhD
Dr Clare Kelliher is interested in supervising students who have an interest in flexible working. ; This could include both projects concerned with employer initiated flexibility (short term contracts, use of temporary employment agency staff, functional flexibility, etc) and those concerned with employee orientated flexibility to aid the achievement of greater work-life balance (remote working, flexi-time, reduced hours etc).
Recent and current research projects carried out in this field include the implementations of functional flexibility; the implications of long-term use of temporary agency employees; an assessment of the ?right to request? legislation and an examination of the link between flexible working and performance.
Should have a background in the social sciences or in a management subject
Some knowledge of employee relations/the organisation of work.
Some research experience (eg.: Master?s dissertation) desirable
