Flexible working

Flexible working at Wates

Allowing everyone to perform their best.

We’re committed to having a workforce that more accurately reflects society and providing an environment that positively encourages flexible working through working arrangements and benefits.

Following the introduction of sector-leading Family Leave Policies in 2020, we have become one of the first construction companies to support flexible working across every part of our business, including for site-based employees.

By 2025, we intend all our roles to be flexible, and we already advertise all new vacancies as flexible.

Our six flexible working principles are designed to allow our colleagues and teams to develop working patterns that take into account individual preferences, allowing everyone to perform at their best.

  • It’s for everyone
  • It should be mutually beneficial
  • Its about the team
  • It involves give or take
  • It must be leader-led
  • It’s about context
