The Co-op supports its employees by offering flexible working such as hybrid working, compressed hours and job-share, giving colleagues choice about how they do the right work at the right time.
What we love about Co-op:
💡 They offer a variety of flexible working options and see the benefits that this can have to colleagues and the company.
💡 Anyone can request to work flexibly, regardless of the length of time worked at the company or the number of hours worked a week.
💡 Co-op supplies the correct technology and support needed for hybrid working
What is worth checking with Co-op:
💡 Individuals may not be granted flexible working if one or more colleagues within a team have already had flexible working agreed.
💡 Hybrid working is dependent on the role, the level of supervision required, the minimum levels of physical cover required and the section of Co-op that colleagues work in.
