Flexitime arrangements will only be available to staff at or below the ANUO7 level, who do not have access to a rostered day off arrangement, work under a recognised shift or roster arrangement or have access to a flexible working arrangement.

All applications by staff for Flexitime are subject to the approval of the Manager of the functional area, and must be undertaken accordance with the University's Flexitime Guideline.

Agreement must be documented and records kept of start and finish times, which should be maintained on a Flex Sheet (xls 126KB).
