Making it work for you Flexible working

Here at Coutts, it’s important that you have access to different ways of working to fit around your lifestyle. We believe that flexible working can make a real difference to your wellbeing and professional development, and in turn can benefit the customers we serve.

What is Flexible Working?

Depending on the nature of your role, we sometimes provide flexible working as a way to meet your needs as an employee. This can include having flexible start and finish times, working from home or working part time.

Whether you’re a parent, a carer, a student, or just have a busy lifestyle, we understand that it’s not always easy to commit to standard working hours.

The flexible working options available to you will be highlighted as part of the recruitment process, and is something that can be discussed at the interview stage.

What types of flexible working do we offer?

Below are examples of the types of current flexible working arrangements we offer for certain roles. This list is not exhaustive, and there may be other forms of flexible working that are better suited to you and the business area you work for.

Part Time

You would work less than the full-time hours for the business area, perhaps by working fewer days per week.


You choose when to start and end work, within certain core times, still working your total weekly hours.

Job Share

You would voluntarily share the duties of one full-time position with another colleague, splitting the hours on a pro-rata basis.

Annualised Hours

You would be working a certain number of hours over the year, but have flexibility around when you work. There are often core hours which need to be worked each week, but the rest would be worked flexibly or when there’s an extra demand of work.

Home working

You would undertake some, or all, of your working duties from home or anywhere else other than the standard allocated place of work (including other Coutts locations).
