Flexible Working Approach

AECOM recognises we all have different aspirations, commitments and passions, but that we all share common ground in trying to balance work and life outside work.

Our approach to flexible work recognises the realities of the 21st century workplace, where ‘hours at a desk’ aren’t the true indicator of value or contribution.

We provide a variety of flexible work options, from part-time positions and staggered work hours, to job-sharing and the ability to work from home.

Part-time: An employee who works fewer hours than a full-time worker. There is no specific number of hours that makes someone part-time, but a full-time worker will usually work 35-40 hours a week.
Flexi-Time: This is a working schedule that allows employees to choose when they start and end their workday, usually to accomodate an individuals needs and other commitments outside of work.
Core Hours / Staggered Hours: Core hours refer to specific times an organisation requires an employee to work, for example 10am to 4pm. Staggered hours are when an employee has different start and finish times from other workers.
Compressed Hours: This is where an employee increases the volume of hours worked each day in order to reduce the number of days worked.
Full-time: A full-time employee works between 35 and 40 hours per week, usually on a permanent contract.
Job Share: An arrangement where two people, or sometimes more, are retained on a part-time or reduced-time basis to perform a job normally fulfilled by one person working full-time.
Phased Retirement: This refers to an approach that gives employees the ability to manage the transition from full-time employment to retirement.
Hybrid Working (Office / Home): This means an employee splits their time between the workplace (usually office based) and remote working (usually at home).
Remote or Mobile Working: This is a type of working arrangement that allows an employee to work from a remote location outside of corporate offices.
Work From Home (WFH): This is where an employee has the ability to set up their workspace at home, and manage their work without the need to go to the office.
Office Working: This refers to an employee being physically present in the workplace to fulfil their contractual responsibilities.
Shared Parental Leave: This allows parents to share a portion of leave and pay with their partners to care for children from birth, usually until their first birthday.
