Flexible working

We offer a variety of flexible working practices to meet the needs of staff and the service.

Every effort is made to accommodate flexible working as far as is reasonably practical; many staff within the Trust use some form of flexible working which includes arrangements such as flexi time, annualised hours, flexible retirement, and career breaks.

Our special leave arrangements include policies for parents and carers, adoption, civic and public duties, and study leave. We also offer a range of flexible retirement options.

We support our employees in any way we can to ensure they have a good work-life balance. This means we recognise the benefits of staff feeling they work for an employer who invests not only in their development but also in their well-being.

We are committed to improving the working lives of all our staff, and aim to be a first class employer by supporting staff to:
•Combine work and home life effectively.
•Enjoy a healthy and safe working environment.
•Develop their careers through lifelong learning.
