I run the business flexibly around my family, this does mean I work part-time. My child-free hours are Tuesday, Wednesdays & Thursdays, 9.30-2.30.
I try my best to be flexible to everyone’s needs but outside of the child-free hours I put my job as a parent first. This does mean at times when the children are poorly I may need to cancel meetings. I will do my very best to keep disruption to a minimum and ‘touch wood’, I have pretty healthy kids.
I apologise now for any emails sent at an anti-social hour and do not expect responses from clients at weekends or evenings!
These terms and conditions supersede any previous terms and conditions – January 2020
