Where practicable staff are given the opportunity to work flexible working hours, provided they work during the core hours i.e. 9.30am - 3.30pm each day and complete their contracted number of hours each week or fortnight.

In addition to 23 days of annual leave, on completion of five years continuous service annual leave entitlement increases to 25 days.
