Agile working can help employees balance the changing demands of work and their personal life, while contributing to improved performance and productivity. Working agilely also assists in attracting and retaining people, improving health and wellbeing, and reducing absenteeism.
Agile working arrangements are jointly agreed with the line manager, to suit the role responsibilities and to have service delivery as a priority. The role has an office base and the postholder will be required to have some office presence. To support employees, the required IT equipment is provided.
