Post Covid-19 Plan
We have carried out a full risk assessment and put together a return to work plan as per government guidelines. We are currently using a rota system that allows up to 50% capacity in the office, open to whoever would like to book in. We will move to a permanent hybrid working system that sees staff split their time between the office and home as of September (government guidelines allowing). Each team differs in terms of their in-office expectations so feel free to discuss this during your interview process.
