Flexible Working at GLF Schools
We are committed to flexible working opportunities across our Trust to ensure we meet the work-life balance requirements of a diverse applicant market. We are open to discussing flexible working at hiring point.
We believe flexible working enables us to attract and retain the best talent, enables wellbeing, supports work-life balance and aligns with our values. Flexible working could include:
- Flexible hours
- Compressed hours
- Agile working
- Remote working
- Hybrid working
- Staggered start and finish times
- Ability to attend meetings virtually
The above will be determined based on operational needs.
GLF Schools was part of the CIPD flexible working champion pilot and more recently one of three Multi Academy Trusts who took part in the Timewise flexible working pioneer programme.
As a result of the project we are moving to a proactive ‘whole-school approach’. It helps schools to move away from the constraints of responding to a limited number of requests on a need-only basis, to an approach that is reason-neutral and seeks to support the well-being of all staff. In a whole-school approach, there is open discussion around where, when, and how people can do their jobs, and a wide array of working patterns may be considered.
