Flexible and hybrid working at BSR

Nearly all of our roles are hybrid. At BSR, this means that we all come into the office once a month for all-staff activities, and then at team level we make decisions about how often it is productive to come into the office. Our office is for activities focussed on collaboration and communication. Our teams work to our hybrid working principles, where each team works out how they use time spent in various locations to meet their objectives. Our focus on digital wellbeing and productivity supports our aim to be a workplace where everyone thrives. Our fulltime working week is 31.5 hours, spread over 5 days. We offer a lot of flexibility around this, so you’re not tied to a 9am-5pm day.
This could look like a 4.5-day week, however, you can also tailor your working hours to suit your individual needs and responsibilities. 

Inclusivity is one of our organisational values, which means that we ensure work location does not have any impact on anyone’s ability to input into decisions or reduce anyone’s career progression. 

We’re happy to talk flexible working options with anyone as part of the application process- whether that’s part time, compressed hours, or anything else. You can get in touch with us at
