dc.description.abstractMen’s roles and behaviours in the home have evolved significantly over the last few decades. Involved ‘hands on’ fathers are much more prevalent. However, research on fathers and working men remains a neglected focus. Our paper seeks to render ‘working fathers’ more visible and provides insights into the work-life balance (WLB) experiences of professional men in a flexible and autonomous work role (academia). We interviewed fifteen male faculty members with pre-school and school-age children from three research-oriented European business schools. Our study identified three salient themes that emerged from how fathers talk about WLB – ‘mastering time’; ‘it’s all about being there’; and ‘performance pressures: imposition, compliance and choice’. We show how some fathers attempt to become ‘jack of all trades’ – an ‘involved father’, an ‘ideal worker’ and a ‘caring husband’ – and how some fathers adopt working practices that heighten their level of (self-produced) work life conflict.en_US
