35-hour week pilot

From June 2024 we will be piloting a change to our normal full-time, 37-hour 5-day week. Over the next 12 months we will be piloting a shorter 35-hour week (for the same pay as before) where staff work a full day Monday to Thursday, and finish the working week at 1pm every Friday. It’s just a pilot at this stage while we evaluate its impact on our staff, our tenants, and the service we provide, but if successful we will consider a permanent move to this way of working in 2025.
