Does anyone do this in a commercial environment? I'm going into work later this week to discuss my return from maternity and want to explore options of working flexible hours. Much of my work is project based so with proper planning I think term time working is feasible. Would love to know if anyone else does this and can suggest how I can make a convincing argument to employers.
Hi, I don't exactly do term time only, but I have got an arrangement for 4 weeks unpaid leave during the summer holidays in addition to my annual leave. This means that I can cover most of the school holidays.
Unfortunately I left to work in a school but it didn't work out and was offered this new arrangement by the company I had left.
My job is also project based, so it shows that it can be done - you just hope that project implementation isn't during the school holidays! hth ML x
thanks. I just need to convince employers it is workable - not sure if they will want to create a precedent as many of my colleagues have young families. May suggest trialling it next year and agree to go back in january rather than March. if they go with that we can review it later in the year to see if it works for both parties.
