Industry-leading flexible working

Our flexible working policy is one of the most forward-looking in the industry, designed to balance what is best for both staff and our clients. Across all offices and locations we give staff the ability to decide where they work for much of their week. 

To ensure we retain the best levels of teamwork and on-the-job learning we ask staff to be ‘on-site’ either in our office, with a client or at an event for at least two days a week. One of those days is spent as a team day in the office for meetings, brainstorms, planning and catch-ups.

For the rest of the week staff can work from any location unless they have other face-to-face commitments such as client meetings and events, team meetings or training.
