Opencast has a forward-looking ‘hybrid’ approach to where people work.
We believe strongly in the value of working together, face-to-face. We have all seen how in-person meetings can result in more productive collaboration and help to build the trust needed for our teams to succeed.
In 2022 we moved into a new Tyneside HQ, as well as opening three new city hubs – in London, Leeds and Edinburgh. We’re investing in further facilities in these locations to make in-person working even better – and are planning new hubs for 2023 that will bring greater accessibility and convenience to our people.
We offer flexibility to everyone at Opencast, to enable our people to have a healthy work/life balance - this is why we don’t require them to be in an office between certain hours or on set days. We do encourage our people to make use of our offices when it would benefit them, their work and their team.
There will be times when clients ask our consultants to attend their site in person, either on a scheduled or an ad hoc basis. As part of our commitment to ‘doing the right thing’ we encourage them to find an arrangement that works for them, their team and the client.
When clients do make such requests, our consultants will always respond positively and flexibly.
Because of all this, Opencast is not remote first – we are hybrid. Hybrid working at Opencast means all of our people, including consultants and those working in core operations, will be in the right place at the right time to deliver their work, taking into account the requirements of our clients and their team.
