Flexible working

Flexible working at Phoenix is: "A lifestyle that fuses your personal and professional life." We believe in a culture of flexibility, depending on the role we may be able to offer working arrangements that suit your needs. In today's world of work/life challenges we recognise getting this right is important to our employees and the success of our business.

Examples of this may include but are not exclusive to the following:

  • Part-time: You would work less than full-time hours for the business, perhaps by working fewer days or hours per week.

  • Flexible hours: Still working your contracted hours, you would have flexibility to start and finish within agreed core working times.

  • Job share: Where the role allows you would voluntarily share the duties of one full-time position with another colleague, splitting the hours on a pro-rata basis.

  • Home working: You would undertake some, or all, of your working duties from home or anywhere else other than the standard allocated place of work (including other Phoenix locations).
