‌Flexible Working at CEP

The Centre for Environmental Policy (CEP) recognises the importance of a healthy work/life balance for all staff and strives to provide a supportive working environment that benefits both employees and the Department.

Flexible working is an option open to all staff at CEP and is a way of working that accommodates an employee’s needs. This is available for all staff, including parents and carers. Flexible working can include having flexible start and finish times, working from home, job sharing and other arrangements, and can be designed to suit an individual’s needs.

CEP is committed to equality of opportunity and valuing diversity: we value the positive contribution diversity brings and believe that it is vital to our continued academic excellence. By offering flexible working, we aspire to recruit excellent and diverse staff.
