Flexible working

Everyone's situation is different, so to make the most out of the working day we've introduced different ways of working:

  • reduce or vary working hours
  • reduce or vary the days worked
  • work from home (or a different location)
  • work compressed hours
  • job share

testimonial "I started at Nest as a temp working full time and really liked it here. After a few months the position became permanent and fortunately I was offered the permanent role. At that point I asked if I could go down to four days per week and my request was granted. I now have Mondays off and really look forward to getting out of bed on a Tuesday morning."

testimonial "The key thing for me is being able to pick up my children from school one day a week. Additionally, I’m able to leave the office slightly early so I can come home at a suitable time to have dinner with the family. This is the best work-life balance I’ve had in my career. I also work from home one day a week."
