Three quarters of respondents to a poll carried out by The Stage would be prepared to share their job with another person.
The poll was conducted following news that performer Charlene Ford had become the first in the West End to take a role on a job share basis, in the musical 42nd Street.
Last week, Equity also revealed details of an ambitious West End claim, which calls for more job flexibility for people with caring responsibilities, while campaign group Parents in Performing Arts has been calling for job shares since it inception in 2015.
The Stage’s poll asked whether readers would be prepared to share their job with someone else.
It found 75.2% of those responding would be prepared to share their role, with 24.8% saying they would not.
