"A work day is seven and a half hours plus lunch, so long as you do the hours you can start and finish at any reasonable time. I tend to start at 7.30 am and finish at 3.45 pm."
Graduate, Crawley
"Working hours are very acceptable, being standard office hours most of the time. Some overtime has been necessary when workloads are high but, overall, the company operates a 'give and take' approach to working hour flexibility."
Graduate, London
"We can start early and finish early. This is beneficial if I have appointments as it means I can still attend instead of taking a day off."
Entry level, London
"Good hours that come with flexibility."
Graduate, London & Crawley
"Quite flexible with hours worked and there's always opportunity to do overtime. This rarely feels pressured and never forced."
Midlevel, London
"I always work my contracted hours, perhaps with a little extra time dedicated to travelling between offices when necessary (generally infrequently). The flexibility with start and end times is great. I just need to make sure that it doesn't clash with scheduled meetings and this is not normally an issue."
Graduate, London
"The company is very flexible with working hours."
Graduate, Crawley


"Generally I work from 9:00am to 5:00pm. The company is fairly flexible; for example it is possible to work from 8:00am-4:00pm if you prefer."
Graduate, Crawley
"The hours depend on the team and the office. There is some flexibility on start and finish time as long as all the hours are done. Operational staff start earlier, i.e. between 7:00am and 8:00am, but also finish earlier."
"I generally work 9:00am-5:00pm, however different offices work different standard hours and most places tend to be quite flexible as long as you work your contracted number of hours."
Graduate, London
"The company operates flexi-time, which is very convenient for everyone."
Entry level, Crawley
"Flexibility is often down to the department manager. The majority of company is on a 37 hour week and managers don't expect you to work overtime unless it is paid."
Graduate, London
"All managers I've encountered allow flexible working. After the first year you do have to keep time-sheets and costs are allocated accordingly, so you have to work your hours. I've experienced no pressure to work more than my contracted hours."
Graduate, London
"The company seems to be pretty flexible as long as you get the work done and you don't miss any meetings."
Graduate, Bury St Edmunds
