With flexible working and job-sharing featuring highly in the Raising Films Ireland report “The Pursuit of Change, Issues Affecting Parents and Carers in Ireland’s Screen Industries” the data now exists to support the theory that screen industry staff and crew want more sustainable, balanced and family friendly careers.
