DISTRICT council staff are taking part in a new pilot project designed to open up job opportunities for people wanting to work flexible hours.

The scheme Slivers of Time was originally trialled in London and is now being opened up to Cambridgeshire.

It is being backed by East Cambs District Council, along with other district councils, Cambridgeshire County Council and the East of England Development Agency who will work together to inform businesses and potential employees about the new service.

Suzanne Goff, East Cambridgeshire District Council's corporate strategy officer for communities, said: "The benefit of the 'Slivers of Time' service is that it offers employment to people who wish to work but prefer or need flexible hours; for example: people with disabilities, students and those caring for dependants. It's also very useful in rural areas - local workers can register the amount of hours that they are able to work and the times which suit them on a database for local employers to search.
