As the job market has changed over the last ten or so years, so too have people’s requirements around work.

You may already be leaders in company culture, vision and purpose. You may be adapting to these changes by managing your working practices, retaining skilled staff and recruiting flexibly.

We can help you with this vision; devising and implementing a sound flexible working structure that is right for your organisation and makes you ready to face the future.

Why recruit flexibly?

There are many lasting benefits to becoming a flexible recruiter.

  • Find new talent outside the regular channels
  • It can be an excellent cost-saving exercise, without losing talent
  • It’s a clever way to tap into expertise without incurring full time costs
  • It is brilliant for start-ups, especially those looking for their first employee or consultant.
  • It allows you to dip into a new pool of talent, perhaps one you haven’t tried before
  • It can uncover the right person with the right skill set, outside the regular channels
  • It’s the answer if you’ve outgrown your offices and need to hot desk or stagger work times
  • Professionals working reduced hours are often extremely focused and dedicated
  • You may want to try something different to energise and motivate your team
  • It will help promote a happier team atmosphere, cut down on illness and promote loyalty and engagement
  • Flexible workers are dedicated and productive and add to the bottom line.

Yes, but....

Of course we understand that there may be misconceptions about flexible working.

We’ve partnered industry professionals, businesses already offering flexible working, recruiters and candidates to develop a set of best practice guidelines. The aim of these guidelines is to help you overcome any negative feelings you may have and maximise the benefits of flexible working.

What does flexible working look like?

The old model of working an eight hour day and clocking off at 5pm doesn’t always answer the needs of modern businesses and the best candidates.

Flexible working is not one-size-fits-all and we can help you plan a structure that works best for your organisation:

  • Full time flexible – with some home or remote working
  • Part time flexible – reduced hours
  • Condensed hours – full 37.5 hours of work in a 4 days
  • Job shares
  • Core hours – full time but dedicated work hours 10-4
  • Flexible start and finish times but keeping 37.5
  • Nine day weeks
