Flexible working

The Department of Mathematics aims to provide a supportive working environment that encourages all students and members of staff to fulfill their potential and achieve their ambitions. 

The Department supports a healthy work-life balance. We encourage the use of flexible working arrangements through the remote working policy and  flexible working scheme (requiring a contractual change) or flexi-time scheme (no contractual change needed).

There are many ways the department supports flexible working:

The Department recognises that there may be times when members of staff need to take time away from work due to personal circumstances. Leave in special circumstances is intended to provide a sympathetic response to this, and the procedure and guidance provides a framework for making and considering these requests. Examples could include bereavement, compassionate circumstances and domestic emergencies.
