    What's going on with work from home and return to the office?
    More and more, people are talking about going back to the workplace and the new normal. At Simply Business, we're thinking of it as a Better Normal. That means offering our SBers more choice and greater flexibility to work in a way that's best for their particular job, their teams, and their lives.
    We're shifting to a hybrid working model, so we'll have employees working virtually and in the office at any given time.
    We're also aware there are times when working together in person is the best way to get things done. We expect our SBers to connect in their hubs (that's what we call our offices) most likely once every few weeks. That said, there's no one-size-fits-all solution, so we expect all SBers and their teams will find the operating rhythm that works best for them.
    If you're wondering what it might be like for you at Simply Business, our Talent Acquisition is happy to answer any questions. In fact for them, it's perfectly normal.
    Most of our interviews will still take place over Zoom (however, depending on the role, there may be the opportunity/expectation to meet members of the team in-person). If it looks like you could be a good fit for the role, we'll ask you to interview on Zoom - you'll need WiFi and a laptop, or a 4G-enabled smartphone. If you don't have access to either of these, or you need support with your application, get in touch with us at Similarly, please email us with any questions or if you want to pause your application for a bit - we'll be happy to keep you updated on future opportunities like the one above.
