Staff talking at a meeting

This section of the toolkit provides staff with tools and guidance to support flexible working.

Flexible working arrangements

The University has developed a range of flexible working arrangements. Through these arrangements, we aim to support our managers to deliver flexible services that meet the changing needs of our students and other customers, as well as assist our workforce to achieve a positive work-life balance.

All staff are encouraged to read and understand the flexible working policy.

We have developed two sets of guidance for our staff groups because their employment contracts are different. You should read and follow the guidance in the relevant section below:

If you are interested in requesting flexible working you should read the guidance and consider and discuss the impact of your request on your colleagues, the service you provide and how any issues may be overcome before you apply. Read our guidance on requesting flexible working.

Flexible working can also read about the options for flexible working open to them.
