Flexibility and hybrid working

At Macquarie, hybrid working empowers us to work together flexibly, balancing time spent working in the office and at home. Our shift to hybrid working is an extension of our long-standing commitment to flexible working. 

We are a people business. We build relationships and learn from each other. Our approach to hybrid working enables us to balance the needs of our clients, colleagues and teams, taking advantage of the benefits of coming together in person and increased flexibility.
