Flexible Working

Flexible working' describes any working pattern where the number of hours worked or the times when work takes place vary from the standard practice for a post.  Flexible working patterns can have benefits for both staff and the University, by helping staff achieve a better balance between their home and work responsibilities, and by enabling Schools/Departments to structure working patterns around the peaks and trough of demands.

From 30 June 2014 all employees who have a minimum of 26 weeks' continuous service have the right to request flexible working and to have their request dealt with in a reasonable manner. The criteria, process and conditions for making and considering a flexible working request are set out in our Flexible Working Arrangements Policy.
