"I work from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm Monday to Thursday and 9.00 am to 4.00 pm on Fridays. The company is flexible with both my work location and hours. I can finish work even earlier on Fridays so long as additional hours are accrued during the week."
Marketing, Graduate, Maidenhead

"We have flexi-time working. You must be in the office 10.00 am – 3.30 pm but how you make up the hours to 37 on either side of that is your prerogative."
"We have flexible working hours where the core hours at 10.00 am – 3.30 pm but we can come in earlier or later depending on personal circumstance. It's taken as a privilege and is not abused. As long as all work is done, the hours are very flexible."

Marketing, Graduate,
"It's pretty much 9.00 am – 5.00 pm Monday to Friday but every manager is different and flexible. I often work 8.00 am – 4.00 pm instead or work longer hours during the week to leave earlier on a Friday to allow me to travel home for the weekend to see friends and family."


"My employer is very flexible, although there are deadlines the environment often remains positive which makes the hours worked more enjoyable. I definitely have a good work/life balance at the moment."
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."

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
