WorkSmart for your day

When it comes to your working day, we understand that work-life balance is important and that there is no ‘one size’ fits all. Sometimes working from home or a different location gives you the flex you need to maintain balance and achieve your goals. On other days, you need to visit our tenants and meet with our customers or collaborate with colleagues in our workplaces. This is why we have introduced WorkSmart.

WorkSmart is our hybrid approach to how we work. It gives our people more choice, within their role and needs of our business, to flex where, when and the hours they work. We are really happy to talk more about flexible working – formal or informal - as part of the recruitment process.
