Full-time schedules are not a requirement for high-paying positions

“There are a number of extremely valid reasons that workers seek out part-time employment, such as taking care of young children, health issues, caregiving for a parent, phasing into retirement, or simply seeking a better work-life balance,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs

According to the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, part-time workers comprise about 17% of the total U.S. workforce, the majority of whom are working part-time for non-economic reasons (which means their part-time schedule isn’t because they can’t find a full-time job or because business conditions make it impossible to work full-time hours). To demonstrate the variety of high-paying and professional jobs that don’t require a full-time schedule, FlexJobs has identified thirteen high-level jobs with part-time schedules for experienced candidates to consider. A “part-time” job refers to a job requiring fewer than 35 hours of work per week.

“There are a number of extremely valid reasons that workers seek out part-time employment, such as taking care of young children, health issues, caregiving for a parent, phasing into retirement, or simply seeking a better work-life balance for all of the normal chaos many of us juggle,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “In fact, in one of our recent surveys of more than 5,000 workers, more people reported being interested in a part-time schedule (46%) than being interested in freelance work (39%). In the past 10 years, we’ve seen a significant growth in the depth and variety of opportunities for professional part-time jobs at the higher career levels, despite the misconception that part-time positions can’t be available at the senior manager or C-suite level. This is a welcome shift, as part-time work has the advantage of providing professionals with the ability to maintain their skills and industry knowledge without vastly decreasing their income or committing to a full-time schedule,” Sutton Fell concluded.

Each of the 13 jobs on this list meets the following criteria:

-The job is a part-time position, requiring less than 35 hours per week
-The job is professional-level, requiring advanced experience and education
-The job’s pay rates at least $50 per hour, which, in a full-time role, would equate to at least $104,000 annually. Rates below are according to the high end of Payscale’s hourly scale.
