Flexible Working

“Flexible Working” should empower employees to have more autonomy over working arrangements, where they have a specific need to adapt their working pattern, hours, or location. Flexible Working refers to an agreement which allows employees to have more control over when, where, and how they work, to better suit their individual needs and circumstances.

From 5 April 2024, all employees have the right to request flexible working from day one of employment. The procedure for making a flexible working request is set out in the Flexible Working Code of Practice below. The Flexible Working application form and guidance for managers and employees can be found in the associated documents below.




Flexible Working Case Studies

We are looking to hear from employees and managers about their experiences with flexible working arrangements.

  • For employees who currently have a flexible working arrangement and would like to share their experiences to inspire and inform the University community, please complete this online form.
  • If you are a manager and would be happy to share your experiences of accommodating any flexible working requests, please complete this online form.

We are looking to utilise employee and manager case studies to help enhance the flexible working guidance documents and to showcase the benefits of flexible working.
