Does anyone job share currently? I have my company if they would consider but I am not sure how to make it work.

If possible, I would suggest that they set it up as two part time jobs with split benefits that are independent from each other. That way if your partner quits, you will not be burdened with either going back fulltime or finding another partner. As a carrot, you can say that you will work more hours in a particular week to cover the other person's absence, as needed. It really depends on the type of work as to how things are divided.
