ITV understand that flexible working means different things to different people and teams, therefore ITV tries to facilitate each person's needs through their "Smart working" approach. 

What we love about ITV:

💡 ITV understand that flexible working is the future, and have reduced their London office space to accommodate for the new era of working. 

💡 Smart weeks allows individuals to reduce the number of days worked in a week or month.

💡 Smart time gives employees the opportunity to shift when they start and/or finish. 

What is worth checking about ITV:

💡 Flexible working may be job dependent and therefore employees should discuss with their hiring manager / manager to understand if it's available for their role. 

💡 Employees who have over 26 weeks' service have the statutory right to request flexible working.

Flexible Working Approach

At ITV, we want to be the most flexible employer in media, which is why we’ve introduced Flexible Working.

Flexible Working mean different things for different people and different teams, but what it brings to everyone is a way to work well and be your best, whoever you are and whatever your business area.

The ITV Way has shown us that we must evolve our culture so that we’re more flexible and inclusive, so that we can work collaboratively and focus on innovating, and that we can have honest conversations and deliver on our More than TV strategy.

And this is where Smart working comes in. It covers your locations, your time, your weeks, and your hours. Here’s how it works:

Smart location

Smart locations are the places where you know you can be at your most innovative and creative so you get things done. You’ll need to have access to everything you need to do your job at your Smart location.

Smart time

Smart time is all about working the same amount of time - but shifting when you start and/or finish. For example, if you’re contracted 9am - 5.30pm, then moving to 10am - 6.30pm could make a big difference to your day.

Smart weeks

Smart weeks are about reducing the number of days you work in a week, fortnight or month, which means reducing the number of contractual (paid) hours you work.

Smart hours

And finally, Smart hours are about prorating your hours which means reducing the number of contractual (paid) hours you work. So, instead of working 9.30am - 6pm you could work 10am - 4.30pm for example.

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.
Reduced Hours: This is a provision given by an organisation to an employee to work for a lesser number of hours as compared to the mandatory working hours set for all employees.
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.
Career Breaks / Sabbatical: These are an extended periods of agreed absence from work. The term is often used interchangeably with "sabbatical", which is generally taken to mean a shorter period of leave of several weeks or months.
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.

*Please note that not all flexible working options may not be available for every role.
