The last couple of years have pushed us to rethink our working methods and patterns. With the aim of providing more flexibility and a better work/life balance for our team, Feilden Fowles will be trialling a 9-day-fortnight working pattern from April 2022, meaning every two weeks full-time staff will have an additional day off. We are confident that this initiative will not negatively impact our services but improve professionalism, efficiency, quality, and timeliness by encouraging a more energised and contented workforce. Free-days will normally be set on Fridays unless impacted by bank holidays. To keep our clients and collaborators informed, Feilden Fowles will be observing the following bank holidays and ‘free-days’:
April : 15, 18
May: 2, 20
June: 2, 3, 17
July: 1, 15, 29
August: 12, 29
September: 16, 30
