Flexible Working Approach
Each school term we all assess our needs around our childcare patterns and work it out from there.
WORKING PATTERNS WE OFFER
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.
Term-time: These are contract based agreements that are used to accommodate an individuals childcare responsibilities during school holidays, as well as for staff who work in the education sector.
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.
WORKLOAD OPTIONS WE OFFER
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.
Ad-hoc: A type of employment contract between an employer and an employee whereby the employer is not obliged to provide any minimum number of working hours to the employee.
4 Day Week: This is where an employee has a 4 day working week, while maintaining the same pay and benefits as a Monday to Friday role.
WORKPLACE OPTIONS WE OFFER
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.
LIFE EVENTS WE OFFER
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.
