Shelter tackles the root causes of the housing crisis by challenging the people in power to make our vision of a home for everyone a reality. We lobby the government and local authorities for new laws and policies, and more investment, to improve the lives of homeless and badly housed people.Our influential campaigns bring the reality of the housing crisis to the attention of the media and the public, who help us fight for solutions.

Shelter offer a range of different working options, prioritising both flexible hours and workplace. With many roles, Shelter give the employee the option to determine their way of working. 

What we love about Shelter: 

💡 Shelter offer employees the option to be office based, hybrid or remote for many roles 

💡 Since many roles can be done remotely, Shelter prioritises finding the best candidate for the role, rather than allowing factors such as candidate location to impact decisions

What's working checking about Shelter: 

💡 Flexibility usually differs by the type of role, for example retail roles will require employees to be based on-site. 

Flexible Working Approach

Flexible working is at the heart of our organisation. We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit. We also both flexible working hours and flexible working practices, to help you have a work / life balance. 

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.
Mutually Agreed / Predictable Hours: These refer to a pre-agreed number of hours between a business and employee. These may flex up and down slightly, however they generally remain the same month on month.
Compressed Hours: This is where an employee increases the volume of hours worked each day in order to reduce the number of days worked.
Self Rostering / Shift Swapping: This allows employees to input on their own working hours or swap shifts with other employees, while meeting their contractual agreement.
Phased Retirement: This refers to an approach that gives employees the ability to manage the transition from full-time employment to retirement.
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.
