Graduate, Maidenhead

Midlevel, Maidenhead
"The flexible working hours are great and enable you to have a good work/life balance."
Graduate, High Wycombe
"My usual hours are 9:00am-5:30pm, but generally I work longer. The company is really flexible and helpful in terms of letting staff leaving early for appointments, etc. I have found this to be an enormous perk."
Entry level, Maidenhead
"I have flexible working hours, which we are allowed to flex around the core hours of 10:00am-3:00pm. There is an early finish on Friday afternoons. Working from home is encouraged where necessary."
Graduate, High Wycombe

"I generally work 9:00am to 5:00pm, and it is not very often that I have to stay late or work overtime."
Graduate, Inverness
"There are peaks with heavy workloads around key reporting dates (month end/quarter end) but extra hours worked are then either given back or you can have some flexibility in the quieter periods."
Finance, Graduate, Antwerp, Belgium
"The company is extremely flexible with hours and you rarely work far over your normal hours. For example, my hours are normally 8:30am to 5:30pm."
Marketing, Graduate, High Wycombe
"Working in finance can mean that you have to be flexible when needed to work late hours, but this is always taken into consideration if you want to take those hours back and leave earlier when you are not so busy."
Experienced, Wokingham
"I have found the hours to be very flexible. If your workload is high then you manage your work hours accordingly. Additionally, you can always ask for time back if you have exceeded your average contracted hours."
Graduate, Inverness
"Work hours are flexible, as I manage my own diary. My role often requires overnight stays and late nights in the week. However, I very rarely have to work weekends (if ever) and I am free to finish early on a week day if I have been working late on other nights."
Graduate, South West
