Flexible working means any working pattern that is different from your current one. We want to support colleagues to work flexibly wherever we can, and support colleagues to have the right work-life balance.
Depending on the nature of your work, we encourage hybrid working which allows colleagues to mix home working with office work. Currently, employees are required to be in the office eight days per calendar month, if working on a full time basis, unless agreed otherwise.
Our offices are split between the historic Guildhall, in the heart of the City, and Tower Bridge.
At City Bridge Foundation we encourage everyone to come to work as they are. We are committed to continuing to make improvements to make everyone feel safe and happy at work.

We are a Living Wage Employer
In 2001 the living wage was founded by a campaign group, Citizens UK, to ensure the basic rights of people living and working in the UK. This policy guarantees that the workers get paid enough to cover their shelter, food and water.
In 2011 the Living Wage Foundation was set up to recognise responsible employers who pay a real living wage, by awarding them the ‘Living Wage Employer’ mark.
