Flexible and agile

Flexible working

Everyone's personal situation is different. To make the most out of hybrid working we've introduced different ways of working, which include (subject to role requirements and relevant policies):

  • hybrid of office and home 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."

People and Development team

testimonial "The biggest attraction when I first saw the job description was the flexibility being offered. I have a young family and my two boys need taking to and picking up from school every day. Being able to work between the school runs and working from home most days was actually a dream come true! It’s my perfect hours and work location with what has transpired to be a wonderful team in a fantastic company!"

testimonial "The opportunity to work flexibly helps make the work life balance a reality. There are peaks where we have to work together to support the business and when it allows, flexible planning allows me to do things that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to. We have agreed days we attend the office for team meetings and in person meetings in the office, and then work from home when it suits. I appreciate the opportunity to work flexibly, and it’s a feature of Nest life that is hugely appreciated. "

Allen Anthony

Head of Financial Crime and Compliance Management

testimonial "I currently work 4 days a week and do this from home and attend the office when I am needed. This is amazing as it gives me the flexibility to drop my son to school and also collect him. When I do attend the office I am so grateful for the flexible working hours as I am able to drop my son to school at 9am and make it to the office for 10am, I will then complete my day in the office and leave early to make it back for dinner time with my son and then complete the time I have missed working at the office from home. I could not be more thankful for the work opportunity NEST provides as I can work and be a Mum all at the same time. "
