Flexible working arrangements

We're proud of our commitment to flexible working conditions and a healthy work–life balance. We understand that our employees have a range of commitments outside of work and we've tailored a number of options to meet these needs. Whether you have a family, live far away from the office or like to go to the gym at lunch, we can help you out.

We support flexible working hours which means full-time permanent employees can work between the hours of 7am and 6pm each day, giving you greater flexibility around your work. Our employees also have the option of part-time work in which hours and days are discussed with the individual.

Working from home

You may also be eligible to work from home on a short-term and/or occasional basis. Remote access can be set up if you're working from home.

'Flexible hours are essential for me as it enables me to spend time with my kids that working 9–5 wouldn't allow.'

Work–life balance
