"On average my hours are 8.30 am – 6.30 pm. Fairly flexible, although at graduate level at any firm there isn't going to be much flexibility in terms of working from home etc."
Graduate, London
"Contracted from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm. My actual working hours are more like 8.00 am to 6.00 pm on average. Flexibility on hours is largely dependent on workload. If you are busy, you will be in the office. If work quietens, hours can be flexible."
Graduate, London
"Very busy at year-end getting valuations to clients. Summer tends to be quieter."
Graduate, London
"I typically work 8.45 am to 5.45 pm with a little bit of flex each way. This will vary depending on workload and each team is quite different."
Graduate, London
"The nature of my work means some weeks can be quiet and I don't have to work particularly long hours, but other weeks are very busy and I have to spend a lot of time in the office. When things are very busy, working hours are not particularly flexible and we are expected to put the extra hours in."
Graduate, London
"We work reasonable hours, which really depend on the work and how busy the team is. Sometimes during the year you are in early and out late but at other times it is much more relaxed. Technically, our hours are 9.30 am to 5.30 pm, although most people get in slightly earlier and/or leave slightly later."

"The workload is high. Standard working hours are between 9:30am and 5:30pm, however, these are flexible and may be adjusted to suit particular requirements on a specific day or volume of work at that particular period."
London
"A typical day is 8:45am until 6:00pm. However, it varies some days I finish later, some earlier. The company is flexible. You are expected to get jobs done but maintain a healthy work/life balance."
London
"The office hours are 9:30am until 5:30pm but I will usually work 30 mins either side of this."
London
"As long as the work you need to do is done, the company are very flexible on hours."
London
"Understanding about appointments etc generally but varies between teams."
London
"The amount of time you spend in the office varies with each team and the work you are involved with. On average I am usually out of the office on site inspections or in meetings with clients once or twice a week. In terms of working hours I am usually in the office between 8:30am and 6:00pm but this can be shorter or longer depending on deadlines and how much work I have on."
