Work arrangements

We are a flexible workplace. To manage the commitments of work and life we offer a range of flexible work arrangements for staff.

You may be able to negotiate the following with your manager:

Varied start and finish times

You can vary your starting, lunch break and finishing times to suit family or other commitments, subject to operational requirements.

Roster arrangements

You can organise a roster system such as a 19 day month or nine day fortnight. This means you work additional time each day to have a day off either once a month or each fortnight. Due to operational requirements not all areas may be able to offer roster arrangements.

Flextime

You can work additional hours one day to make up for shortened hours on another. To help with calculating your flextime, see our flextime calculator (XLS, 218KB). Due to operational requirements not all areas may be able to offer flextime.

Time off in lieu

Time off in lieu is available for professional staff and teachers only. Time off in lieu may be built up for additional hours worked. It may be used as an alternative to paying you overtime. Time in lieu needs to be used within three months of when it is worked. You cannot accrue more time in lieu that your normal weekly hours of work. Time off in lieu is managed locally  between you and your manager, balances are not shown in HRonline.

Work from home

Staff may be able to work from home on a regular or one off basis. If you are establishing a regular work from home arrangement please see the working from home procedure. This procedure includes a working from home proposal (PDF, 63KB) that needs to be completed.

Working parents

We also have additional flexible working arrangements for working parents.


To apply for any of these flexible work arrangements please speak to your manager. All flexible work arrangements are subject to the requirements of your business area. For more information see clause 53 of the enterprise agreement (PDF, 16KB).
