Flexible working

Guidance for departmental administrators

Flexible working can include a wide variety of working practices. A flexible working arrangement can be any working pattern other than the normal working pattern in your department. Examples could include:

  • part-time working;
  • compressed hours (for example, working full weekly hours over four rather than five days);
  • job-sharing;
  • staggered hours;
  • term-time only working, or
  • working from home ("teleworking")

There is also provision for flexible retirement.  A scheme allowing, with University approval, a mixture of retirement and continuity at work.
