"I work 9:00am-5:30pm in the Croydon office. In my role there is not much travelling around and the office are very flexible with working hours, (if you arrive early you can leave early)."
Graduate, Croydon
"My hours are relatively flexible; I can leave early on a day and make it up the next day."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"The core hours are from 9:00am until 4:00pm, with flexibility around for 7.5 hour day. Flexibility depends on the project and the timescales you are working to."
Graduate, Reading
"They are very flexible with working hours as long as you don't play the system. Expect to work a minimum of 37.5 hours a week however this will change depending on the project and deadline that need to be hit."
Entry level, London
"As long as 37.5 hours are worked, within reason, you can leave the office early on a certain day to pursue leisure activities, as long as the time is caught up on other days. Often the company will encourage you to have a good work/life balance, because it is likely to improve productivity when you're in the office."
Graduate, Glasgow
"There is good flexibility once you have proved you are capable of delivering, as one would expect. I do spend a lot of time commuting (four hours plus a day), mainly due to the client. I do accept that this won't be forever though, and the company is supportive in giving me scope to work from an office closer to home."
Midlevel, Reading
"The company doesn't have a flexi-time arrangement, but most managers are happy for you to come in at 7:00am and leave early. I have rarely worked overtime on project work. However, graduates have to work towards their chartership in their own time."
Graduate, Altrincham
"Our working hours are relatively flexible. As long as you work your specified hours, you can decide how you want to spread them across the week. You may choose to start at 8:00am if you want to finish early. Or you may work longer hours one day in order to leave early on another."
Graduate, Birmingham
"I typically don't do any overtime unless it's absolutely necessary. Which is fantastic as nobody wants to regularly stay in the office for an extra half an hour every night for something that could be left until the next day! My boss is extremely flexible when it comes to working hours, allowing us to work late in the evening and then leave early/come in late the next day if it suits our schedule better!"
Graduate, Glasgow
"I have often been told not to stay in the office past six unless I absolutely have to."
Graduate, Sheffield
"Standard work hours are 37.5 hours a week. As a base line it is not flexible, with 8:30am to 5:30pm hours, however, in my experience, given a good reason managers are willing to allow moderate flexibility on occasional circumstances where necessary and where time can be made up."
Graduate, Shifnal
"The company is flexible within reason. There is an expectation that you will work more than your contracted hours during busy times."
Midlevel, Norwich
