FSCS's flexible working approach 'Smarter Working' focuses on a successful work-life balance with full flexibility for employees to decide their work schedule. Employees can choose what environment they believe is the best to work in, whether this is on the phone, at home, in the office, or anywhere else.
What we love aboug FSCS:
💡 FSCS's Home Office Equipment Allowance of £200 per employee per anum, gives employees support by ensuring they have the correct technology to work effectively.
💡 Value outcome over output, embracing flexibility with a high trust culture.
💡 Workers can choose their schedule between 7 am-7 pm, whether this means starting earlier or finishing later, giving the opportunity to take time out of their work day for personal commitments.

For the FSCS, flexible working is the rule, rather than the exception. We have implemented a flexible working approach called 'Smarter Working', which focuses on three core principles: where, when and what.
Where you want to work:
FSCS is committed to creating a working environment where you can successfully balance your working and home lives.
We provide office spaces at Beaufort House where business collaboration takes place and social connection happens five days per week between 7:00am and 7:00pm.
Our smart working principle is built around our 40/40 rule: 40% of our people spending on average 40% of their time in the office - in simple terms around 2 days out of a standard 5 day working pattern, 3.5 days in a 9-day fortnight or 8 to 9 days out of a 22 day working month.
We also ensure your remote working environment is optimised for productivity by providing the right support, technology and our Home Office Equipment Allowance of £200 per employee per annum.Work is an activity not a place – think about what you want to deliver today, tomorrow, this week and this month and where is the best location to deliver the best results.
When you want to work:
We offer all colleagues both flexibility in their working environment and flexibility within their actual working day. We use our office opening hours as a good outline for our working day: between 7:00am and 7:00pm, but within these hours the choice is up to you in agreement with your line manager and your team.
So start early, take the kids to school, go to the gym at lunchtime, work later into the early evening or finish early. All teams should work with their line managers and colleagues to agree a working pattern that works for everyone.
A published rota allows us all to know where we are and when.Most importantly it allows the People Team to ensure that we do not breach our social distancing guidance or have too many people in the office at any one time.
However, if you need to change your working pattern because of a change in circumstances or personal issues in any week you can agree this with your line manager.
