Video clip: Verity explained that flexible working is part of her team’s usual practices, and appreciates how she is allowed to manage her work and condition to the benefit of all.

I think the thing about this group is that we work - all work very hard. And there are times when I would work longer, or I might do some work in the evening. Or I might - I shouldn't admit this, but I sometimes look at my emails on my day off. I think that's fine, because that's keeping on top of this, and I appreciate the flexibility. So I'll give a bit of flexibility back. So I think we're just treated like grown-ups.
