What constitutes flexible working arrangements? 

  • Working from home or remotely from another location

  • Working flexible hours eg.

  • Working a set number of hours per year rather than per week 

  • Working different working hours during school terms

  • Working a set number of hours per week at any time of the day (flexi time)

  • Switching to different working hours (e.g. from 11am to 7pm)

  • Working reduced hours (part time) 

  • Two individuals performing the same role on different days of the week (job sharing)
