Answer for City Hall as a Timewise employer

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Our main priority is to continue to find more ways of creating part time and flexible working opportunities, where practicable, in City Hall.  Over the next six months we will be looking into the Timewise Accreditation process and will review the costs and benefits of this process. To date we have used some of our Account Management time to discuss with Timewise ways in which they can help and support the GLA to review its current approaches to flexible working.


The GLA has also participated in a Timewise led employer round table discussion looking at flexible working options across industries. Thus far the GLA has advertised three posts via the Timewise portal.
