Flexible Working Approach

We know it’s increasingly important for everyone to have flexibility in how, where and when they work, to support our wellbeing. Which is why we’ve introduced flexi-working, to support our future sustainability and help us motivate and retain diverse talent, build resilience, productivity and support individual wellbeing. 

When you work with us, you can combine home and office-based working, with greater flexibility in your working patterns and locations. This allows you to balance business, colleague and team needs with enough time set aside to come together to collaborate, connect and socialise. At the same time, the flexibility provides support for you and your personal responsibilities and priorities, or just things you love doing outside and around work. 

Here are a few ways you may like to work 

1 Hybrid, full-time and fully flexible working: You fix two locations (e.g. home and office), and the number of hours, but agree the specific hours and days in each location periodically 

2. Hybrid, full-time and fixed hours: Your contract would specify the two locations and specific hours per week (either standard or non-standard) 

3. Part-time: You work reduced hours in a day, reduced days in a week or a combination of both, in comparison to the full-time equivalent number of hours for the same role 

4. Work permanently from home: Work from home as part of your normal working pattern either with fixed hours or fully flexible 

5. Work permanently from the office or a branch: Work from the office/branch as part of your normal working pattern 

As you can see, flexi-working provides a great opportunity to design a working pattern that suits you. There will always be a few exceptions where certain roles aren’t able to support the full flexibility available, but we welcome the opportunity to talk through your needs in the recruitment process.


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.
Compressed Hours: This is where an employee increases the volume of hours worked each day in order to reduce the number of days worked.
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.
