Flexible working toolkits

Our two toolkits support individuals to make flexible working requests and line managers to support their staff to work flexibly.

The NHS Staff Council has collaborated to develop two new guides that support NHS line managers and staff to work more flexibly. The guides, one for managers and one for individuals, reinforce the message that flexible working is for everyone.

Guide for line managers

Allowing your staff to work flexibly is an important part of creating a modern and appealing employment culture across the NHS, therefore offering flexible working is one of the ways you can attract and retain a diverse workforce.

Our line manager flexible working toolkit provides information on supporting your team to work flexibly.

Guide for individuals

Our flexible working toolkit for individuals provides advice on having conversations with your manager, tips for working flexibly and things to think about.
