Flexible Working Trial

Since early February, we have been trying something different, something that *fingers crossed* is here to stay.

Long story short. We find ourselves at the forefront of a global shift in how we work, when we work, and where we work. So to mix things up, we have implemented a nine-day working fortnight. We have every other Friday off to go and recharge our batteries. The Fridays at work are split into halves: mornings for Creative Catch Up and other meetings, while afternoons are dedicated to training and development. That’s 25 additional Fridays spent not in work and at least 7.5 days committed to training across the year.

We will test this for three months and have been and will continue to monitor this working model meticulously throughout the process to ensure this structure can mutually benefit you, our clients and the company itself.
