Flexible working approach

In September 2020 we launched our Flex Appeal, taking a crucial step to becoming a truly flexible place to work. Our people can now work their contracted hours whenever and from wherever it best suits them. We don't have set hours, and our employees can design their working day to fit around their life commitments. We followed this up with the launch of Flex Away in Feb 2021, an unlimited holiday policy that all staff can enjoy. We know that our teams are our biggest asset, and we provide each employee with the opportunity to have a completely flexible approach both inside and outside of work.

Company FlexScore™

Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.


Employee FlexScore™

Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.


"The business is willing to be brave and make decisions that are based on the well-being of the employees (e.g. flexible working, unlimited holiday) that other companies in our sector may not make. They aspire to be people first and live up to the bill."

What do we think of Austin International?

In an industry not renowned for its flexibility, Austin International are doing some groundbreaking work. Employees are given the freedom to choose how they work, with a results-driven focus rather than clock watching and desk-time. Great to see!
