Flexible working: for prospective staff

To help achieve our vision of being one of the world’s leading universities, we want to build a world class workforce. We can work towards this through enabling our managers to build flexible teams whilst creating a positive working environment in which all our staff can succeed.

The University has developed a range of flexible working arrangements to support this ambition. 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.

Flexible working is used to describe a range of ways of working. At the University we consider the following as options - flexitime, annualised hours, part-time working, teaching restrictions, compressed hours, homeworking and job-sharing. You can read about these options in the flexible working toolkit.

If you are considering a role at the University and wish to work flexibly, you are encouraged to contact the person named in the advertisement before applying to discuss the role and feasibility of different working arrangements. Should your subsequent application result in a job offer, you are advised to discuss your requirements for working arrangements prior to accepting the offer.
