Smarter Ways of Working

Arrangements may include 2 office working days, with three home working days a week, compressed hours for example 19 days in 20, with flexible start or finish times and longer lunch breaks. You’ll be given a laptop to dock into our flexible workspaces and for use at home from your own space when you can.
