Rough office hours are between 10 and 6. Sometimes it will be busy and sometimes it won't. That means if you are busy we would expect you to work the hours needed to get the work done, but if it isn't - go home early.
We’re not counting the days. The catch? Nothing. Just treat yourself, your colleagues and your company with fairness and respect. Make sure there’s been a proper handover of your work, and that you have someone in place to cover anything that may come your way.
