Yesterday, the First Minister announced Scotland would move cautiously into Phase 2 of its route map through and out of the crisis, which brings an easing of some restrictions and a little more freedom to our personal lives.

This is a positive step forward and the result of a continued drop in new cases of COVID-19 in Scotland. 

Working arrangements

The move to Phase 2 does not change your working arrangements. Frontline services will continue to be delivered as they have been and those currently working from home will continue to do so.

As and when there are any potential changes to your working arrangements, your manager will contact you directly to discuss.

Getting it right

A working group has been set up to ensure a safe return to work for all. The group’s recommendations will be considered by the Corporate Management Team and decisions taken will be communicated to you via your manager and the employee webpage.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about your current working arrangements, please speak to your manager or contact HR on
