From time to time (maximum 3 times a year), we will expect you to join the rest of the team in the office in Newcastle upon Tyne for key events. We don’t anticipate this extent of travel to increase in anyway, and we’ll cover the expense of your travel and accommodation.
It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours.
