Hybrid working

In Professional Services, we want to create a more flexible future for our people because we know that it can benefit us in our working and personal lives. 

Following feedback from What Works? and other recent staff surveys, the University introduced a hybrid working pilot across Professional Services (PS). We are focusing initially on PS as we believe these are the teams that will experience the most change from moving to hybrid working arrangements.

Over the past few months, we have been developing our approach to hybrid working, refining a set of principles, and developing a detailed managers’ support to guide you on this journey to a new way of working.

All our leaders and managers will play a role in supporting the introduction of hybrid working in their teams and enabling our employees to work more flexibly according to their role and the needs of our University.
