WORKYOURWAY INSIDER VIEW

Armstrong Watson have implemented 'Smart Working', which is their own approach to flexible working. The accounting firm seems committed to helping all colleagues manage an effective work life balance; however, there's limited information about what this looks like in practice. Smart working also includes the ability to purchase extra annual leave.

What we love about Armstrong Watson:

💡All roles offer 'flexible & smart working', which gives employees the ability to balance home-working / office location

What's worth checking about Armstrong Watson:

💡Flexibility is usually discussed with your line manager in order to agree the best times and places, which means flexibility could vary by team and department

💡No part-time roles are currently listed

Flexible Working Approach

Work is an activity not a place! We believe in smart working, meaning you don’t have to be chained to your desk to make a difference in our business. We see smart working as a win win, as it gives our people the flexibility they need in their life and offers our clients the ability to be seen as and when is best for them.
