Flexible Working

The University recognises the benefits from supporting initiatives which may help employees to achieve a balance in their work commitments and their life outside of work.

The University has a legal duty to consider all applications from employees who are eligible under the Statute and to establish whether the desired work pattern can be accommodated within the needs of the business. The University will consider each application objectively on this basis, and not attempt to judge whether one applicant’s need for flexible working is greater than another’s.
