Flexible Working Approach

To flourish, our people need the freedom to balance their day-to-day lives with their work. This is why we’ve set out to create inclusive and flexible policies and practices for you to accommodate all your responsibilities and needs: children, family and beyond.

Our policies and practices around flexible working and family:

Agile Working

Agility is a mind-set that is based on trust and flexibility. We encourage our people to explore, within their teams, how they can work in an agile way which allows them to be at their best, deliver high-quality work and meet their responsibilities in and outside of work.

You can view our How we work guide, outlining our approach agile working and returning to the office. Please note, some links within this guide will not work outside of Grant Thornton.

The time you spend outside of work helps shape what you can bring to our firm. We value the commitments you may have outside of work and to demonstrate this, all of our people have an immediate right to request a flexible working arrangement under our flexible working policy.
