One of the benefits that we provide is the ability to work flexibly.
That flexibility includes the number of core hours you commit to, and how those hours are distributed. For example, if you want to work from 9.30 to 4 every day, that’s fine with us.
As a firm, we have standards about things such as how quickly calls are returned and how quickly emails are responded to. (This applies to both internal and external communications.) As long as your core working hours allow you to meet those standards and they also work for the team as a whole, then they are likely to be acceptable for the firm. We think this is likely to involve a minimum of 25 hours a week, so as to allow for the basics such as CPD and keeping in touch with your team.
The flexibility also relates to location – meaning that you can work from home or other locations. The main requirement is that you have a good broadband connection and mobile phone signal.
Working from home does have its challenges, and it’s not for everyone. (You may find this article useful.) But for many people we know, it allows them to be more productive than in a traditional office environment. We believe that most people want to make the biggest contribution that they can. Part of our mission is to help you spend less time on the stuff that doesn’t make a difference, so that you can focus on what matters to our clients.
