Apologies wrong response to wrong post!

But in response to your post. Legally you can request flexible working but your employer doesn't have to agree to it. Sorry...

Have they given you/got a business case for refusing your proposal?

Did your application demonstrate that their business needs would be unaffected by your proposal/ or suggest how it could be dealt with?

Someone who knows the details of how the process is supposed to be handled will be along, but I know, sadly that agreeing to flexible working is not a foregone conclusion.
