Supporting work-life balance

Athena SWAN Bronze award

At NTU we're committed to creating an environment that enables our colleagues to flourish, and we understand that a healthy work-life balance is crucial. As part of our work around Athena SWAN we wanted to showcase how NTU’s flexible working and family-friendly policies can work in practice.

We asked colleagues to tell us how these policies work for them in a series of case studies, to demonstrate just some of the different working options available to support your work-life balance.

If you are an NTU colleague and would like to tell your story, get in touch! Contact
