Flexible Working Approach

Everybody has their own unique circumstances. We’ll try hard to accommodate yours, creating a schedule that works for you. That’s true for any employee, at any grade, in any part of KPMG in the UK.

It’s called Intelligent Working. That means considering any working schedule that’s outside the traditional working pattern, focusing on outcomes rather than time spent at work. The aim is to achieve the right balance for everyone, enabling us to help our people build their careers without sacrificing their personal priorities. It’s all about focusing on outcomes and trusting our people to do the right thing for themselves and our firm.

We support the following arrangements:

  • Part-time working
  • Job sharing, in which two employees share the duties and responsibilities of one full-time job
  • Glide time, which means working core hours (10:00am to 4:00pm) but starting work between 8:00am and 10:00am and finishing between 4:00pm and 6:00pm
  • The opportunity to purchase up to 35 days holiday per year
  • Unpaid leave, in which you can choose to take up to three months off work without pay
  • Opportunities to take an unpaid career break from work of between three months and three years
  • Working from home for one or more days per week
  • Annualised days – a form of part-time working, based on a set number of days during the year.
  • We’re happy to consider any working arrangement that allows you the work-life balance you want, providing you can fulfil your commitments.

FLEXIBASE WORKING PATTERNS DEFINITIONS

Annualised Hours: This is an employment contract where the employee's working hours are calculated on an hourly basis, rather than daily or weekly. Those hours are at times stipulated by the employer during the year.
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.
FLEXIBASE WORKLOAD DEFINITIONS
Job Share: An arrangement where two people, or sometimes more, are retained on a part-time or reduced-time basis to perform a job normally fulfilled by one person working full-time.
Phased Retirement: This refers to an approach that gives employees the ability to manage the transition from full-time employment to retirement.
FLEXIBASE WORKPLACE DEFINITIONS
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.
